Second Verse Better Than The First

Behold! Below is the result from putting two bananas and a pear through the Japanese-made manual juicer I found kicked to the curb Wednesday morning (and had so much trouble not only identifying but then juicing a solitary pear the first time around). I decided to give it another try this morning and I’m pleased to report the process went much better this second time around. Instead of more than five minutes to crush one piece of fruit I had the trio reformatted in less than 120 seconds.

While my first hand-cranked pearnana smoothie might lack visual appeal, trust me on this: it was 非常においしい*.

There so will be lemonade.

* “very delicious” (at least according to Google Translate).
