 Making Apple Cider with friends.


First we had to cut the apples with a huge knife. Ray really liked that part.

Then we had to feed the cut apples into a grinder/masher while someone kept pressing them through the grinder.

The mashed up apples were dumped into a press and squeezed through a screen.

The apple pulp is then removed to feed deer or compost.

We poured them into jugs to take home.

A neighbor that was helping brought over some of his hard cider. I think it tasted like white wine.

Ok. Your blog clarifies a few things. Like the big 'ole knife next to the "bottle."

What fun!! Where were you able to press your own cider???

Oh how I miss NY State apples and fresh pressed cider!!!! So...I'm enjoying it all through you, Linda!
