Apples, Apples, Apples

December 1st, 2012

A couple weeks ago we made apple cider.  One advantage of living in this beautiful valley:  an abundance of apples.

We started the night prior, by moving the apples from the truck into the garage down this handy chute.

Then comes the washing, sorting, and cutting out any bad spots.  This year we used a Fuji Golden combo.

Warren and Alex did all the heavy work with the grinder and press.

The girls were great little helpers, and even better supervisors.

Getting more apples, before taking a recess with the big kids.

Another important step in the process is filling the jugs.

And then the final product!  Oops, I guess this is the wrong photo, but you get the idea.  Miah was even a good helper 5 years ago!
