My sister-in-law lives in a small apple orchard. Her grandson was visiting from Texas and we spent Friday afternoon making apple cider. BJ was an expert at picking the apples:
They have a "hand crank" cider press and we all took turns tossing in the apples and cranking the wheel:
The aroma was wonderful and there is nothing like a glass of fresh cider!
We made about 5 gallons!
And BJ was the best helper!
