Cider or apple juice

finished product

We collected some apples today and made my first attempt at cider. It’s not exactly right since I don’t have a press but we used a juicer to get it done. We collected two five gallon buckets of apples but only did about three quarters of one pail to make three quart jars of cider. Rinse the apples off and just go to town.

We diced the apples up and removed any bugs or rotten spots. I’m not sure this is really needed as when I have been to a cider mill it doesn’t look like they do any of this they just crush the apples.

We took turns cutting and juicing.


Very frothy before I pour it off into the jars and put it in the fridge.
