Second Cider Pressing

After our first cider experiment we still had a bunch of apples left over. This time we were able to use a real cider press belonging to a neighborhood gardening group. Even though it was fully manual, it was so much faster than putting 50 pounds of apples through a countertop juicer. And the resulting cider was nice and clear without a lot of fruit debris.

We opted to pasteurize this batch. We ended up with just a couple of gallons, but it tastes great; and now that we’re familiar with the process we’ll be able to do this much more efficiently next year. We definitely plan to do it again next year on a larger scale.
