Apple Pressing Day

So Russ, Jay, William, Piper, Sammy and Belle came over today.  First we had lunch with grilled hamburgers and sausages with tortilla chips and homemade pico de gallo from our garden.

Then it was apple pressing for the men and hanging out for the rest of us.

    I’m so jealous. We have a beautiful press that my grandfather built and used to do a big cider day every fall. The most was 81 gallons of pear and apple over 2 days. But we haven’t done it now for about 5 years.
    Oh and apple jack is very, very easy to make and cold distill. It’s absolutely delicious. Or so I’ve heard *cough, cough*. Looks like you had a great day.
