busy making cider

We have an abundance of apples in our garden this year, our freezer's full to the brim with chunks of apple in bags ready for a snugly winter of eating crumbles. So with loads more apples still dropping off the trees we decided to try making cider. Mmm I love cider, I like it dry and not too fizzy. This is actually batch 2, we spent another day a few weeks ago making batch 1, which is now safely in bottles tucked away for drinking next summer! 

Cider making is quite fun especially on a nice day, like Saturday, when you can do it outside in the sunshine. You collect up your apples, give them a wash, I chopped, D mushed and our little helper from next door did the pressing! So after a days work we have one very large bucket of apple juice which is now set to ferment away into cider.
