Day 2 - An Apple a Day...


“And when you crush an apple with your teeth, say to it in your heart:
Your seeds shall live in my body,
And the buds of your tomorrow shall blossom in my heart,
And your fragrance shall be my breath,
And together we shall rejoice through all the seasons.” 
― Kahlil Gibran

My friend had his annual Apple Crush Party today.
Everyone picks the apples from their trees and brings them to his home,
where they are crushed in this press...


Everyone joins in and does a part...
From washing apples to loading them into the grinder,
turning the crank,
then collecting the juice and bottling it up...

And there's food...
and home brew cider...
and more food...
and more cider...


It was a fun afternoon....



Honey Crisps are my favorite...
what are yours...?

I like honey crisps, but I especially Jonathons and MaIntosh. I'd love to have an apple press. Thomas makes home made wine, but he has never done apple wine or cider.
