Cider Pressing Party

I convinced my parents to bring their 350 pounds of apples and their cider press up to our house on the pretense that it was my birthday and I needed to be celebrated. We chipped in another 150 pounds of apples scavenged from trees around the neighborhood, and invited a bunch of people to come over.

It took about 4 hours to get through 500 pounds of apples, giving us about 20 gallons of cider. That’s enough for me and dad to do a 5-gallon batch of hard cider each, plus everyone took some home, and Alicia insisted that we freeze at least a little for mulled cider over the winter.
