A good fruit mash is essential for the production of juice, flavour or must. This Fruit mill is well-suited for grinding berries, grapes, apples, pears, potatoes and other soft fruit/vegetables. However, harsh fruit and vegetables as for instance sugar beets, carrots as well as immature and firm pome fruit respectively are not suitable for the processing.
Apples, pears, quince and similar related fruit are particularly ideal for further processing. The relatively firm fruit pulp is crushed by the fruit mill; by this means the mash being produced, increases the yield of juice and ensures the pressing of fruit respectively.
However, – and this holds also true for stone fruit – the grapes, raspberries, currants and similar fruit should not be ground. Anyway, this becomes unnecessary due to the soft nature of their flesh, just being covered by a thin skin. Due to the seeds contained in the fruit, the grinding process causes bitter substances to be released. This would turn the juice a dark brown colour.
A perfect juice quality is guaranteed as long as you process exclusively healthy and ripe fruit. Any immature, overripe, rotten and torn fruit must not be processed. Moreover, any fruit being covered with rotten spots or mould fungus must not be processed either, however, excluding fresh bruises as long as no decay has occurred yet. Prior to the processing, the fruit has to be cleaned thoroughly by the use of potable water. By this means the mash is kept free of dirt.
