I like to search for blog and forum posts related to Mehu-Liisa and am usually pleased with what I find. After all, the Mehu-Liisa Steam Juicer is a practical, economical kitchen tool. In fact, it is a great Holiday Gift for economy minded, practical folks in your life. The Mehu-Liisa’s high quality manufacturing make it an Heirloom treasure to pass down through the generations.
Check out this Holiday Special for a Free Gift opportunity.
Speaking of generations, I found this delightful post from a granddaughter on a forum thread discussing steam juicing on the Tree of Liberty site (The discussion at this point was on the technique of pouring the first quart of juice back over the fruit in the basket during processing):
“…are you referring to the first draw of the juice? I do release the first draw of the juice back into the pot over the fruit, my Nonnie always said you had to “To christen the fruit so God would bless it.” she always told me that. I just do it per her advice because that’s what she did and never really thought about it, but I guess it does concentrate the juice more now that I think about it. She also told me that cranberries need twice the christening as other fruits because they were too stubborn to give in to easy love. Never understood the woman, but loved her dearly….”
It is very satisfying that the Mehu-Liisa Steam Juicer has a place in the lives of people in this way. My father, Osmo Heila, who worked to build his business for 30 years, would be very pleased to hear this kind of comment. It is a testament to his dedication that the Mehu-Liisa is so highly regarded and that steam juicing has become so widely known in the US.
If you have stories about your Mehu-Liisa, please send them my way.
