Just look at that pile of apples! It’s been a brilliant effort by all of our volunteers over the past few days and, in spite of the terrible apple harvest, we’ve got a great haul already and we know that there’s more coming tomorrow. Looks like a full day pressing ahead.
We’ve been busy cleaning and setting up the kit today and it’s all looking good. We’ve just sampled the barrel of cider and it’s a corker. Jane’s got the hog roast in and the apple sauce and stuffing is already made. We’re good to go.
If you’re planning on coming, check out Jane’s blog post below for tips. In brief: bring apples. bring clean containers for juice, bring food (and bring raincoats).
Do yourself a favour and leave the car at home though. You don’t want to miss this cider!
Apples are my favorite thing to cook with. Thanks to all those volunteers!
