"Do you need a juicer?"
My mother called me from a yard sale in Connecticut, where she was visiting her father. There was a "W.W.I. Juice Extractor" there and she wanted to know if I was interested. WWI is the brand name, apparently, not the vintage.
I had considered juicers when I made more money, but never found one that didn't seem ... too exorbitantly priced, regardless of the fact that I could afford it. But a yard sale juicer, likely never used? Sure. Why not.
The thing isn't very efficient and I haven't tried it on anything harder like beets or carrots yet, but I got a few cups of peach juice out of some so-so local peaches, reduced it down with a few peppermint leaves from the front yard, and added gelatin and lemon juice. Chilled it until I had a firm jello, and sliced. No added sugar here -- instead I reduced the peach juice until it was intense enough. Had they been better peaches, I would have wanted to preserve the fresh flavor, but that's not what was going on. Some creme de noyaux -- I'll talk about that another time -- would have worked well, or some ginger. Cinnamon maybe. Port. Bourbon. Plenty of possibilities. The lemon here is pretty pronounced, it's almost a peach lemonade gelatin.
Plain old cream, from good old Hood.
