The flesh was then cut into small pieces and the skin and water from the skin removal procedure was placed in the pot. It was all cooked and beat into a homogenous slurry. The slurry was then strained to make juice.The juice was placed in 11 liter jars and pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for long term storage at room temperature.
