Cooking by steaming is increasingly popular because vitamins and minerals are not leached into the cooking liquid so foods are more flavoursome & nutritious.
For use with fruits for juice, cordials, purees etc:
Perfect for extracting pure juice for drinks or jellies from: black, red & white currants; berried fruits like elderberries, loganberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries; rhubarb, hard fruits like crab apples & quinces and stoned fruits like damsons, sloes and plums. It is not suitable for citrus fruits.
Time saving! No need to de-stone fruits or strip stalks (crab apples and quinces need to be halved) and best of all, no need for slow, messy jelly bags.
By layering sugar with your fruit, delicious cordials can be made
Residual fruit pulp can be macerated in a blender & added to the juice to make puree or be made into jam
Pure juice can be used for wine-making
For steaming or blanching vegetables:
Excellent for steaming single or multiple vegetables to be served with a meal – approx 20mins in 1 pot
For blanching vegetables ready for freezing – this stops enzyme production that spoils produce & is suitable for most vegetables with the exception of leafy veg
Use the steamer for making jellied preserves: Caroline Pakenham, author Making Jellied Preserves says of the Mehu Liisa, “I have been using a muslin and up-turned chair for straining for so long that I believed I couldn’t use anything else but I have to say that I have been experimenting with the Mehu-Liisa fruit steamer and have found it very quick. It isn’t too expensive and I would highly recommend it as a juicer and a steamer for all soft and stoned fruits in the making of jellies.”
The steamer can also be used for cooking meat, fish and a variety of puddings
The base pan is ideal for making soups, chutneys, jams & marmalades or boiling large pieces of meat (chicken, ham, beef or tongue for pressing etc)
The base pan is suitable for use as an oven casserole or roasting pot
