Pressing cider at Earth’s Harvest Farm


We had so many apples this year!  Some went into pies, and of course applesauce, but most of them went into cider.  We spent an entire day pressing apples!  Everyone had a job to do….I washed the apples, our two sons took turns working the apple chopper with Paul, and everyone took turns at the press.  Of course we all had our cups ready to sample the cider!  By the end of the day we had 23 gallons, most of which went into the freezer.  Some of the cider was saved out for making apple wine which will be turned into apple cider vinegar…a real treat to have ready in the pantry!
