Our Family Making Apple Cider

We have an apple orchard. What do we do with all those apples? We make applesauce, apple pie filling, and apple cider of course.
Saturday morning we decided to get out the cider-press and make as much as we had time for.
After picking fresh apples and washing them we put them in the hopper.
We take turns turning the grinder. Here is our daughter Jessica taking a turn at the wheel.
Next we press those ground apples into juice.
Our son Harrison takes a turn at the press.
We use fresh picked apples. Our daughter Jessica and I were the pickers this morning.
Here comes the juice.
We continually change the containers as they fill up quickly.
Now our daughter Victoria helps
We ended up with 20 gallons this morning.
This is me going back out for more apples.
We use clean milk jugs for cider and store them in the freezer. My husband Stacey delivered jugs to several of our neighbors.
Garrett enjoys the taste. There really is nothing like the taste of fresh cider. Have a great day, ladies. Love, Kathi"Strengthen me with raisins, refresh me with apples." Song of Songs 2:5
