Apple Day 2017

Quakers had lots of fun pressing two varieties of apples from the trees in the garden.

      

Using a scratter to mush the apples the crushed pulp was pressed in the wooden rotary press

and the juice squeezed out through muslin.

 

The taste it was agreed, was ‘like ambrosia’ – incredibly sweet.

The redness of the apple skin gave the juice a dark colour.

Around 8 litres were generated from a couple of boxes.  There was enough for a a couple of plastic bottles to take home for families – all of which was drunk almost immediately.

A dress rehearsal for our tercentenary celebration next year.

What would we do different? Have it on a sunny day.
