    Question A verb for fruit juice...

    Hi,

    Would anyone please tell me if there is any general verb used when we extract juice from fruit? (For example, we can use squeeze for some fruits, but I'm looking for a verb to be used with fruit in general)

    What's the meaning of "strain" in BrE? Is it used in daily English?



    Thanks a lot in advance.

    I suppose "to juice fruit" is one of the possibilities, isn't it?

    (And how about strain?! )

    You can simply say you "juice" something.

    "Strain" is a normal word in America. What meaning are you having difficulty with? If you are using it with juice, it means to separate the seeds and pulp from the liquid juice. (Like passing it through a filter.)

    Re: A verb for fruit juice...

    In AmE, we use "juice" as a verb when extracting liquid from fruits or vegetables. We sometimes "strain" the juice after extraction to remove seeds or pulp.

    And, in keeping with my tradition of "there is no question too obscure for me to relate to a TV show," here is a classic episode of The Cosby Show where Cliff, who cannot resist purchasing the latest in trendy gadgets, comes home with an electric juicing machine. Watch Part 2 to see how well the children listen to Cliff's warnings about not touching his new juicer.

    Thanks a lot in advance.
    You can "extract" juice. I have a "juice extractor".
