Nellie, I have never seen one of these before now. I love seeing and learning new things. Blogging sure helps . You the old mill you owned must have been really made well, for it to last 45 years. Hope you like the new one. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
I love my food mill. I don't know what I would do without mine. I bet mine is that old as yours, :) it was my sister in law's moms. I know she used hers when she was raising her family and I have used it for 20 years at least.
Many years ago, when we were blessed one summer with what was left in our neighbor's garden when the man was sent off to Germany with the military, I bought one of those, and it was indispensable for squeezing the tomatoes so I could make juice! I have no idea where mine is now, and it would probably be rusty if I could find it. Is it wrong to get excited about a new kitchen utensil? I don't think so! Congratulations on your new addition, and I hope you enjoy it! Love you, Sister!
I've never used one! You could sell your old one to an antique collector. : )
I've never seen one of those either.Are you making grape jelly?Hugs,JB
Hi Nellie. Grape jelly? It will be delish. Susan
Hope it's made as durable as the old one! Happy milling!
I had one of those and never used it! But we do have a very old "victorio strainer" that I use to make tomato juice. About the American girl store, Oh My Gosh!, I posted about it a few years ago. We went to the one in Chicago. Amazing! I came home motivated to design something where I could charge 15.00 to pierce a dolls ears!!!Cindy Bee
That looks like a very effective instrument! Dealing with grapes must be onerous, unless you have some nice equipment like that.
