Autumn brings brilliantly colored leaves, crisp night air, and cider and donuts!
Now, I don’t know how to make donuts, but making cider is ‘depressing!’
Cider press, ‘de-press.’
Ok, enough of the bad puns.
Making cider is relatively easy:
1.) Buy apples, collect apples, or otherwise ‘obtain’ apples.
2.) Wash apples.
3.) Place apples into grinder on cider press.
4.) Crank the wheel and grind apples into ‘pomace’.
5.) Turn screw to press cider out of apple pomace. (Be sure to have the apple pomace wrapped in a bag or in cheesecloth, or you’ll have some pulpy cider!)
6.) Drink fresh cider! (Um, that is, if you remembered to put the container under the spout–if you forgot, now is the time to clean up the spill!)
Don’t have a cider press?
To expense to purchase one?
Why not build one yourself?
Purchase Herrick Kimball’s Anyone Can Build A Whizbang Apple Grinder & Cider Press!
Alright, I suppose that some of you cannot, or will not, make your own homemade apple cider!
Why not visit a local cider mill and see what you are missing?
