Juice (Juicing Grid)

Triturate and press using flat cloths. Fill the feed tube with cherries. Hold the pusher over the cherries before turning on the Norwalk. While triturating, be sure to keep the pusher over the cherries at all times to prevent throwback. When all the cherries have been processed, press all the way down with the pusher and leave it in place until you have turned off the Norwalk.

Note: For rich color use well ripened bing or dark red cherries.
