Thin but not watery?
« on: May 03, 2016, 06:31:34 AM »
Using usually Sclafani, sometimes 6 in 1 (using up my supply of latter) and love the flavor...and actually I'm using okay with the texture...but sometimes they're too chunky for me or need to be thinned     (even though I'd pureed them in blender)  and more easily spreadable for a thinner layer on the pie.  Is a food mill my best/only solution?    I know I could add water, but this would dilute the flavor, right?




Any suggestions for good quality  affordable food mill? 



Thanks

The lazy bug has bitten me lately, and I've been using the stick blender in lieu of the food mill (only with whole peeled - not crushed). Don't notice much difference.

Thanks Craig.. I think a stick blender is in my near future. The last few pies have made it clear that things need to be thinned out.


When using a can of SM's, I've read that some liquid should be drained..is that correct? How much? Is it drained, reserved and added back in as needed?
