I’ve been giving my steam juicer a workout these past few days. It is great because after I am done steaming all the juice out of the apples or pears I can put the leftover fruit into the blender and it turns into fabulous apple/pear sauce or apple/pear leather! There is no waste product. I’ll bet my little piggies are sad that I am using the leftover fruit for sauce and leather, because they sure had been enjoying the spoils of the juicer. After cutting and coring the fruit, I just let the steamer do it’s thing for a couple hours.

When enough juice has accumulated I simply fill the jars and let them seal. Normally when I make apple sauce I make it really chunky. There are some in the family that really enjoy a smooth sauce, though. So they are really enjoying the pureed fruit sauce. It is thick, creamy and taste really sweet. juicing 001
