Nectar (Grid #2, #3, or #4)

Peel grapefruit. Break into sections small enough to fit into housing.

Triturate only.

Fill the housing loosely with grapefruit sections. Hold the pusher over them before starting the Norwalk. While triturating, leave the housing partially full at all times to prevent throwback. When finished, leave the pusher in the tube until you have turned off the Norwalk. As with other citrus fruits, the pectin in the nectar will cause it to solidify and become bitter unless consumed shortly after being made.

If you mix the nectar half and half with water you will have delicious nectar that will keep in your refrigerator.

Juice

Press only. For a pulp free, sweeter juice, fill the center portion of a flat cloth with peeled sections of grapefruit. Fold into thirds and always press with two cloths.

Grated Peeling (Grid #3 or #4)

Dried grapefruit peelings may be ground to a desired fineness to use as a seasoning.
