Squeezo Goodness

Squeezos really are wonderful. Look at that beautiful applesauce coming out of my friend Naomi's Squeezo:


Naomi and her Squeezo seem to keep popping up on my blog. I'd better post a picture of the two of them together. Here is the amazing Naomi and her astounding Squeezo:

Squeezo Naomi and I canned 20 quarts of applesauce yesterday. It would have been 21 except one exploded in the canner. Canning is very exciting that way.

Naomi left the Squeezo at my house and so the Badger and I canned another 20 quarts today. The Badger is a very proficient Squeezo operator. The boys love to help him turn the crank.

Squeezos are great fun. I've really got to get me one.

Honestly, that is one of the BEST EVER blog paragraphs I have read. Beautiful! :o)

Birrd, I just have to be picky about this because I'm a trademark lawyer, but that is NOT a Squeezo. Unless I am sorely mistaken, that is a Vittorio strainer, very much like a Squeezo but not the same exact thing. The original Squeezo has all metal parts, no plastic. Do a Google image search and you will see what a true authentic Squeezo looks like. :)

It's actually not a genuine Vittorio strainer either-- it's some other brand. Naomi's parents had a Real Squeezo when she was a kid, so she calls her device a Squeezo the same way people say "hand me a Kleenex."

Argh!! See, that's the problem. We call them "tissues" at our house. :)
