    Pineapples on sale, can anyone suggest a good recipe?

    I started a pineapple wine in the fall. I was given 50 fruits that were right on the brink of going in the dumpster at the local fruit stand. I added no water. The wine is aging nicely in my basement. Here is the link If you wanted to see what I did. RR

    Rhubarb shredder

    If that is you budget I would look into the Continuous-Feed Food Processors. Robot Coupe Vegetable Preparation Machines. They start in the $1000 range and go up. With these you have more options to multi task. Here are a few vids
