CUCUMBER JUICE

(Pipino Juice)
Ingredient:
 9 medium cucumber
 water

Procedures:
1. Peel your cucumbers if they are waxed. The skin of a cucumber is coated in a protective wax.
While you can eat this coating without much problem, the wax will distort the texture of
cucumber juice. You can accomplish this task by using either a potato peeler or a sharp knife with
a smooth blade.

2. Slice off the ends of your cucumbers using a sharp knife. The bottom and top stem are hard,
inedible parts that you should not attempt to turn into juice.

3. Chop the cucumbers into large chunks. The pieces can be up to 1 inch (2.54 centimeters) in
height, width, and depth. Smaller pieces will also work, but you should avoid using pieces that
are much bigger than that.

4. Place the cucumber chunks into a food processor or blender. You should leave a couple of
inches in between the top cucumber pieces and the rim of the machine. Do not fill the food
processor to the top.

5. Blend the cucumber pieces on a medium or high speed. Run the machine for approximately
two minutes. The mixture should be pulpy, but it does not need to be smooth.

6. Place a mesh strainer over a large bowl. The strainer should be small enough to fit inside the
mouth of the bowl, but if possible, you should use a strainer with a wide enough rim to rest on top
of the brim of the bowl. By resting the strainer on top of the bowl, you free up both
hands.Alternatively, use a jelly bag instead.

7. Place cheesecloth inside the strainer. The cloth will allow you to strain out more pulp. You can
also line the strainer with coffee filters to create the same effect.

8. Slowly pour the blended cucumbers through the strainer. Pour as much of the cucumber
puree into the strainer as possible without causing the puree to overflow.

9. Stir the puree with a rubber spatula or metal spoon, occasionally pressing down into the
cheesecloth or mesh. By stirring the cucumbers, you encourage the juice to seep out and flow
through the strainers, into the bowl. Continue stirring and pressing until no more juice comes out.
