Fresh Pressed Apple Juice

Fresh Pressed Apple Juice

We have two apple trees in our yard. The apples have come on early this year, requiring that we harvest as much as we could before a storm shakes them all onto the ground. Today, a neighbor and I chopped and juiced them (and apples from his yard) using his press. It’s fun, messy business: rinsing the apples, putting them into the chopper, and then pressing the juice. He and I, my daughter, and my visiting mom and nephew all worked at turning the mixture of several different types of apples into golden sweetness. Apple pressing is a lot of work; it’s not necessarily hard work, when you take each step into account, but it’s definitely work altogether.

The result: 69 quarts of apple juice, of which 23 quarts are in my fridge!
