Kay, although I have a food mill, will an old Acme juicer work just as well? Jane

Kay Baumhefner

Hi, Jane! How great to hear from you. The benefit of a food mill is that it's designed to hold back the tasteless fiber, while extracting all the flavor and liquid. If your juicer does that too, then that would work well. If it mainly creates a textured puree, then you could still use it, and then pour and scrape that thicker liquid through a fine sieve to remove the fiber. Hope that helps, and that life is treating you well!
