Recipe of the month
Grape and Pear Juice with Ginger, makes approx. 2.5 litres
2.5 kg grapes, hulled
2.5 kg pears, cut into chunks
30 g fresh ginger, chopped
Clean bottles according to the KELOMAT Steam Juicer Instruction Manual.
Fill the water reservoir of your KELOMAT Steam Juicer with water up to approx. 2 cm below the rim of the basin and place on the stove.
Juicing: Layer the grapes, pears and ginger in the fruit bowl.
When doing so, make sure that the outlet nozzle is sitting in the notch in the water reservoir which is designed for this purpose, and that the clamp is sealing the filling hose.
Place the lid on the fruit bowl. Turn the cooker (gas/electric/glass ceramic/induction) on to its highest heat setting until the water in the water reservoir begins to boil. Then, reduce the heat, ensuring that the water continues to boil consistently. During the boiling process, make sure that there is always enough water in the water reservoir. Dry cooking damages the individual appliance parts, as well as your cooker. The generation of steam – and with it, the juicing – begins as soon as the water has come to the boil. Duration approx. 1 hour.
Bottling: While the KELOMAT Steam Juicer does its job, take the bottles, which you have pre-heated according to the instruction manual, one after the other out of the hot water bath (using oven gloves!) and briefly let them drain off.
When the first batch of juice has begun to form, open the clamp for the filling hose and allow approx. one litre to run into a container. Carefully pour this litre back over the fruit in the fruit bowl. We do this because the fruits already give off juice after the fruit bowl has been mounted, and this juice has not yet been sufficiently sterilised by the steam. Furthermore, this enables the fruits to be cooked more quickly, and accelerates the juicing process.
Then, pour the juice into the prepared bottles. In doing so, it is important that the juice is bottled while it is still hot. At a temperature of 75 degrees C it is sterile and thus long-lasting. Should bottles not be completely filled, the juice is not storable. In this case, after the bottles have cooled, place them in the fridge for immediate consumption.
Whether you fill the bottles during the juicing process bottle for bottle, or all at once after the juicing has been completed, is up to you. In both cases, keep the KELOMAT Steam Juicer on the hot stove so that the juice does not begin to cool down.
To bottle your juice, place the bottles on a chair or stool below the filling hose. Placing a damp cloth under the bottle prevents the glass from shattering when the hot juice is poured in.
Then, place the filling hose into the neck of the bottle and push on the clamp to open it.
The bottles must be well filled. Allow the foam which forms during bottling to settle, and potentially fill up the bottles with additional juice afterwards where necessary. Then, close the filling hose with the clamp once more and seal the full bottle with a rubber cap.
For information regarding the preservation and storage life of the juice, refer to the KELOMAT Steam Juicer Instruction Manual.
PRODUCT OF THE MONTH
steam juicerTO THE PRODUCT
The KELOMAT steam juicer changes juicy fruits into sweet fruit juice in no time. This is done in an very gentle process, in which the fruits are heated, but not boiled. This preserves minerals and vitamins. The steam juicer consists of three elements: a water reservoir (5.2 l) below for steaming (can also be used as a simple cooking pot), a fruit bowl (10.0 l) and a juice container (3.0 l) with a conical nozzle, through which the juice can drain off. You can also purchase the accompanying filling hose here.
Thanks to its thermo stable capsule base, the steam juicer can be used on any stove. The ergonomically shaped metal handles enable easy handling. It is entirely made of premium stainless steel. Therefore, the steam juicer will remain odourless even after many uses, and the taste and appearance of the juices are not affected either. The steam juicer guarantees a high energy exploitation due to the best possible heat and steam distribution, due to which the juicer can also be used for steaming.
