The Mehu-Liisa steamer is this season’s “just must have” equipment for the keen kitchen gardener. It's a multi-functional Finnish-made, three-tiered set of pans used to extract pure juice and make cordials from a host of homegrown and hedgerow fruits and to steam vegetables. The base pan can be used independently as a jam, jelly and pickle making pan. Made from top quality stainless steel the Mehu Liisa steamer has a large fruit or vegetable basket, a juice collection container with outlet tube & clip and a heavy-based preserving/water pan.
Extracting Juice by Steaming
Extracting juice by steaming is easy and quick. You don’t need to strip fruit from stalks or de-stone it. It’s ideal for home-grown currants and berries whose flavour is enhanced by cooking; for damsons, plums and sloes and hard fruits like quinces & crab apples.
Delicious Homemade Cordials
Homemade cordials surpass the flavour of any commercial products; they are simple and inexpensive, you just layer your fruit with sugar according to a recipe (these are supplied), steam to extract the syrup then tap off directly into hot bottles for long term storage.
What else can I make with cordials?
How else can I use the steamer?
Caroline Pakenham, experienced jelly maker and cookery writer has used the all–in-one Mehu-Liisa fruit steamer and praises it in her new book Making Jellied Preserves: 'It’s very efficient and versatile. …..I have been using a muslin and upturned chair to strain juice for jelly for so long that I believed that I couldn’t use anything else but I have to say that I have been experimenting with the Mehu Liisa steamer and found it very quick. I would highly recommend it as a juicer and steamer for all soft and stoned fruit….it is extremely clean, simple and effective. The Mehu-Liisa is distibruted in the UK by Vigo Ltd.'
