For use in Spinzall:
Many Spinzall recipes require Pectinex Ultra SP-L. The Spinzall can clarify almost any non-starchy fruit or vegetable, either on its own or mixed with other liquids or alcohol. Any such product requires pre-treatment with Pectinex Ultra SP-L. Without this enzyme, the pectins in the fruits or veggies will prevent clarification. Using the exact amount of Pectinex Ultra SP-L called for in a recipe is not critical. A little more is better than a little less. Generic “Pectinase” enzymes are NOT a substitute.
