Don't confuse my earlier post with saying I ONLY eat deep fried food. I just said that after it is deep fried I will eat (almost) anything!

First Crop

Well, I didn't get the month of settled weather I wanted - instead I got a storm that "picked" 30 kgs of apples, so I harvested the rest and will let them ripen indoors for a week or so. These are mostly "Katy" dessert apples, roughly 130kgs in all. They will be crushed within a fortnight and vinified separately to the Cookers and Cider apples that are following (still on the trees). Pictures of that session later.

For those not in the "know", 130kgs of fruit = 100 wine bottles of cider.

I'm guessing, but I reckon that there's another, oh, 200kgs on the trees...

Good to see that Im not the only one into making cider
^
three of us pick and then press using our homemade machine
20 gallons per hour
We usually do 500 imp. gallons a year with 1600 imp. gallons on our best year
so far almost 200
All the apples from old homesteads and the people just want them gone
we mix apples and pears on some batches and some we add mint to the mix.
What we do not freeze get turned into sparkling cider
great time of the year
cheers
hank
