I bought 10 big USA pomegranates from Giant yesterday night. It's @ $2.20 apiece. I intend to make fresh pomegranate juice for us today but before I start, I have some questions, hopefully, I can get good answers to maximize my time and efficiency.
1. Taking out the Red Pearls
Traditionally, the way I go about this is to break the "husk" gently using a fruit knife and manually remove the little Red Pearls from the pith. It is very tedious. It usually takes 10 minutes per pomegranate. Is there a better and faster way?
2. Juicing the Red Pearls
Usually, I dump all the Red Pearls into a blender, do a couple of high-speed pulse blending, just enough to "break" the flesh away from the small seeds in the Red Pearls.
After, I pour the blended mixture into a cloth bag and squeeze all the fresh juice into a container.
It's another tedious process, as it requires a lot of time and strength, for my petite hands to squeeze the cloth bag thoroughly.
Is there a better way to juice these little Red Pearls?
Is Will buying a slow juicer help? Can a slow juicer juice these little Red Pearls effectively? If so, what are the functionally effective brands I should consider?
I did surf the net previously on Hurom and Juicepresso. Each of them has mixed reviews. I am not sure which is value for money and most importantly, functionally better in juicing ∼ especially pomegranates. I love fresh pomegranate juice as there is a "wine" feel as I sip the drink juices of juicks
PS: I have also browsed through the extremely long Juicing thread in this Forum as recommended by my elder brother Eat ∼ I am still undecided.
