Squeezing the juice out of something
at my bakery there's a pastry lady who makes zucchini bread or something with finely-grated zucchini. she seems to have to get a lot of the excess juice/water out of it somehow & she was just cupping her hands & squeezing it out that way which seemed to take a long time. she did the same thing with canned mooshed pineapple to get the excess juice out. she has strainers she has tried but they aren't fine enough. i wonder if anyone has any better ideas. i thought of getting two bowls, putting the grated zucchini in one of them then putting the other bowl on top & squeezing the bowls together with one hand on each side. something else i thought of would be to get a press like a garlic mincer which she could fill up with whatever she wanted to squeeze & just pull on the handle. can anyone think of anything better than those things.
The bird could eat its way out of the cage. That was very real to me. As an apprentice, I too felt like a bird in a cage made out of bread. I just fed on my limits. -- Lionel Poilane
