THIS EVENT IS FULL.
We'll be pressing apples again this fall. BYOA (Bring Your Own Apples). If you have access to unsprayed/untreated apples bring 'em along. Last year, we weren't able to have this event due to the late frost that ruined most apple crops in our area, so let's hope for more apple-friendly weather this year.
Spouse and kids welcome!
In 2009, we averaged 2.5gal/bushel of apples; in 2010, we 2.25gal/bushel.
Be sure to bring cleaned containers with lids.
We can have 10 member families at this event.
The cider will be unpasteurized, but you can pasteurize at home by heating to 165°-180°F. See attached Making Apple Cider pdf.
Apple cider freezes well in half gallon ball jars. Great for the holiday bashes. And...maybe this year we'll figure out how to make some apple jack!
No inorganic apples please. Thanks!
