Processed 50lbs of concord grapes, finished it today. This was the easiest juicing that I've ever done; when we were buying the grapes the farmers learned that we had been doing it with a colander and offered to give us their processor - for free!
This is the beast. It's got 3 parts and a lid. the bottom holds the water. above that is a pot that holds the grape juice as it is produced, with a small spigot (you'll see it at the bottom in the picture above, with a plastic tube attached to it to direct the juice).
At the top of this is the colander that holds the grapes; it holds about 10lbs at a time, and produces 5.5 quarts for each batch. At the end of the process you get lovely, concentrated grape juice and the skins and seeds, below.
A cake of grape skins. We give this to the pigs at the farm. They think it's yummy.
These two little guys are at the house; the closer one is the runt of a litter that we didn't think would make it, so Andrea has been carefully nursing it back to health, and the other is a little pig that, well, doesn't seem to have anything wrong with it physically, but seems a little off mentally. Just not piglet-like, but little pigs do so much better with a buddy, so they both get to lay on their heating pad, underneath the heat lamp. I don't see how they sleep like that; they have to be roasting. Both are doing well.
Andrea is not impressed. But I checked her tongue to see if she'd been eating grapes. She passed.
