Squeeze the Day September 15, 2020

Posted by skinbad in Food, Gardening.

We made a few gallons of apple juice last night. A few years ago a neighbor had a big grinder and press and was letting people use it for a few days each to get their apples juiced. It really is fantastic tasting stuff. I’ve thought about making my own setup and have also kept my eyes open for a good deal and came across this small press: https://tinyurl.com/y5tn3k2m

I don’t have a grinder, so Mrs. S. got out the food processor and that did a great job of chopping them up. The rough yield seems to be about a gallon of juice from a 5-gallon bucket of apples. I was worried the press would be too small and flimsy, but it seems to be built pretty well and worked as expected.

Skinbad – in another world in a far-off land I have been unable to comment for at least 6 months.

Huh. I’ll see what I can do.

I emailed you at uncommonmisconceptions. If that won’t get to you, let me know.

…for at least 6 months.

Just checked – it’s been very close to a year.

Pretty nifty, skinbad! I had no idea a decent little press like that could be so inexpensive.

Every fall I think about buying a press and making cider with apples from the countless (okay, maybe a dozen) apple trees scattered around my property. The impulse goes away after I buy a gallon of local cider for 6 bucks only to be replaced by thoughts of making applejack.
