What's your preferred method of juicing black raspberries?

steve22802(7a VA)June 25, 2013

I made a batch of black raspberry syrup yesterday and the final result was very good, but getting there was a real chore. I tried using a cone and pestle but seeds went through the holes and there was still a lot of juice left in the pulp because the hard seeds prevent the pestle from pressing against the pulp. I ended up putting the pulp in a clean cloth and twisting it with my bare hands. There must be a better way. What method do other people use? I'm fine with pulp getting through, just not the gritty seeds.

I've found that most fruit will release their juices easier if frozen first. The remaining pulp I run thru the blender, then let drip thru cheesecloth (2-3 layers) over a colander. I usually process more than the funnel thing will hold.
