    On a lighter note…Fall Cider’in!

YES. Its officially fall and since our new homestead has an abundance of apple trees all over, I thought I would start a new family tradition. Fall cider mak’in. I purchased this nice 8 gallon home cider press last year. It sat in a box collecting dust. Last week I decided to dust it off and assemble.

First we did some pickin;

 

Then, after washing, the apples need to be grinded into pulp to allow for pressin;

The pulp is then put into a mesh sack and placed into the apple press;

Press is covered with round wood blockand built up with square blocks to allow for pressin;

Now fer press’in;

 

And, finally, filter’in;

Love it BH…

Let me add….A pinch of cinnamon,  a little (or more) Everclear, warmed on the stove and sipped next to an open fire on a crisp fall night with Wharf Rat playing in the background!!
