    Default De-Seeding Berries?


    I've got about 10 pounds of black raspberries and blackberries. I'm
    not a sweet eater or much of a baker so most of it I want to use for
    ice cream. The raspberry ice cream came out great but there were a
    bit too many seeds. The blackberry was miserable because of the
    seeds. So I'm pushing the stuff through a sieve and getting very
    bored. My recipe calls for 3/4 pound of fruit. I've used it for
    peaches, strawberries and raspberries. I like the recipe but I've got
    no clue how much of the pressed juice to use. I'm thinking about a
    half cup should be fine but I'd like to know if anyone knows better.
    Are there any other tricks to de-seed than other than a sieve?

    Also, what would you do with 10 pounds of free berries?

    Here's the recipe I'm going to use.

    strawberry ice cream Gourmet | August 1997

    Makes 1 quart.
    ingredients
    3/4 pound strawberries (about 1 pint)
    8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 cup milk
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    preparation
    Coarsely chop strawberries and in a blender pure with all remaining
    ingredients except cream just until smooth. Stir in cream and freeze
    mixture in an ice-cream maker. Transfer ice cream to an airtight
    container and put in freezer to harden. Ice cream may be made 1 week
    ahead.

    TIA,

    Lou

    Foley food mill.

    There are tons of recipes; preserves, pies, all kinds of baked goods,
    you already have ice cream covered.. I'd probably deseed the rest with
    a food mill and freeze that to use later.

    Do you just want to use the pulp and juice or just the juice? If it's
    just the juice you can mash the berries up good, pour the pulp and juice
    through a few layers of cheap cheesecloth and then use the juice.

    If you want the pulp and juice you're going to need a strainer such as
    the Victorio, the Back-To-Basics, or another like those. Would take a
    bit to get them in after ordering though.

    Wouldn't an ordinary food mill also force both the pulp and juice through
    while retaining the seeds?

    As long as the strainer part is to small to pass berry seeds, some of
    them aren't that small.

    True. Mine has several different plates, the smallest of which would work
    for this.

    why would you buy a food mill if it didn't come with at least 3 sizes of
    plates...1 large hole, 1 medium hole and 1 small hole...?

    large hole...mashing potatoes...medium puree...small de-seeding.

    I wouldn't, but some food mills don't have any removable plates, just one
    fixed size.

    My step-mom makes an excellent deseeded blackberry jelly, but I have no idea
    how she deseeds them. I'll have to ask!

    If you have access to the Ball Blue Book, there is info there on how
    much juice you need to make a batch of jelly. I'm thinking it was 4
    quarts o' berries to about half a cup o' water. Cook until almost
    boiling, and then strain thru a china cap or cheesecloth. The
    liquifing makes deseeding much easier. We did this last year, and it
    made incredible jelly with no pesky seeds.

    Some food mills, like the old tinned Foley, didn't come with plates...
    I have one and it seeds berries perfectly but requires muscle. Then
    there are the auger and cone type food mills, those are a lot faster
    and seed berries very easily... there are even motorized models but
    those are a bit pricey for occasional use.

    As strange as this sounds...the seeds are my favorite part! I love them.
    I don't know why? I just like to play with some foods in my mouth, I guess?

    I don't mind the seeds on strawberries, but I don't like them in anything
    blackberry and I adore blackberries! The seeds in blackberries seem rougher
    than even raspberries and tend to get caught more in one's teeth. Well,
    that's my opinion, anyway, and I'm sticking to it! :~)

    Similar here, I prefer jams instead of jellies and have about two
    gallons of wild blackberries in the freezer to be used as is.

    And while you stick to that opinion they are sticking between your
    teeth. I agree about blackberries. The seeds are huge and troublesome.

    My mother used to have a cone shaped strainer and mashing pin for making
    jellies with things like raspberries and currants.
