Avocados are originally from Mexico and Central America.

For immediate use, select slightly soft avocados, free of blemishes and dark spots. For later use, get hard to firm avocados, which will ripen at room temperature in a few days. When ripe, avocados may be refrigerated, but need to be used within three to five days. Avocados can be stored at room temperature in paper bags to speed up ripening.

Puree (Grid #1)

Triturate only. Do not press. Peel and remove the pits from the avocado. Fill the housing loosely before turning on the Norwalk. While triturating, be sure to keep avocados in the housing at all times to prevent throwback. When finished, leave the pusher in the tube until the Norwalk is turned off. Use Grid #2 if for a finer texture.

Casaba Melons

Juice…for Life.

The casaba is a late ripening winter melon, a member of the muskmelon family with a yellow skin and white flesh. Cut in half and remove cavity contents. Peel and cut into pieces small enough to fit into housing.

Nectar (Grid #4)

Triturate only. Do not press. Fill the housing loosely with melon. Hold the pusher over the melon before turning on the Norwalk. Keep the housing partially full at all times to prevent throwback. When finished, leave the pusher in the feed tube until you have turned off the Norwalk.


Press only. Fill the center portion of a flat cloth with melon pieces. Fold into thirds and always press with two cloths.

Puree (Grid #2)

Triturate only as with nectar. The melon puree will have the consistency of applesauce and it makes a fine topping for desserts.

Salads (Grid #1)

Triturate rapidly and drain. The juice may be used for drinking or other purposes. It chops to the consistency of crushed pineapple and is very good for fruit salads.

Frozen Casaba Dessert (Grid #1)

Triturate only. Peel and cut well ripened casaba into pieces small enough to fit into the housing. Place in plastic bag and freeze. After frozen, triturate rapidly as above.
