Yesterday the whole clan here joined into making some apple cider. Lots of work for all. the press was a borrowed outfit, (all manual). We have neighbors that have apple trees and apples they don't use. So we picked apples day before yesterday and made the juice yesterday. If you have ever helped in this process, you may have seen the apples that go into the press. We didn't cut out the worms and bad spots, only the rotted spots got cut out. I ran the press and as I was cranking the handle, I saw all those wormy apples getting ground up for pressing. [rofllmao] Got this thought, maybe this is one of the reasons for calling it bug juice. Then again, if you have seen it made you may never drink another glass of cider in your life. Anyway, we got between 25 and 30 gallons of cider for all the effort. I've no idea what we are going to do with that much cider, I mean, there is just so much of it a person dares drink in a day. We plan to give some to the neighbor who allowed us to pick so many apples, can some and probably freeze some. Maybe have a cider party with a few friends.
