Apple Cider

I've been away from the blog for a while.  But have been busy in the kitchen.  Today it was apple cider.  See, ever since it became a requirement to "pasteurize" apple cider sold commercially, we've taken to making our own...borrowing our friends Mary and John's industrial strength juicer.

We picked a 1/2 peck of assorted apples at the local apple tree farm about 2 miles away yesterday.  Here are a couple of shots from our morning adventure.  It's real easy and it tastes great!  Also, it will ferment if left long enough...we're trying to figure out how to make Apple Jack. 

I think we'll head back to the farm in October to see if we can pick up the "drops" for free...

Here's the setup.  From l-to-r.  Robbie, juicer, the fruit prep area (my job)

This is a shot of the monster.  Juice below, refuse into sink.
Finished product.

Happy Eating...and drinking!
