Apple Pressing

We borrowed an apple press from our local smallholders society for the weekend. We made it a proper family event with Dad and family friend Alan on the sterilised Woodchipper to turn the Apples and Pears into pulp! We had to be inventive with this! It worked well though and supplied us with lots of pulp to put through the apple press. My sister Tabitha was put in charge of bottling all the fresh juice, then we divided the bottles between us to consume soon! Unfortunately we could not pasteurise it but will try that next year.

Another batch was produced and will be turned into Cider and Perry!
