This is the Amish farm, took the picture from my vehicle before anyone came outside.
They had just come in with a load of corn for the silo.
Her daughter was doing the wash. Normally they wash on Monday, but went to pick up their daughter that had been at her brothers to help for a week.
Here are the apples that were left from our tree after making applesauce and freezing for pies.
They will be turned into cider.
Before going to make the cider, I washed and cut the apples in the morning so everything would be ready.
The cider press. I put the apples in the hopper and one of Mary's boys turned the handle to chop up the apples. It was hard to keep up with him. It didn't take to long and you could start to smell the apples and for the bees to show up.
My finished cider. The cider still needs to be strained when I get home. Strained a small amount and had a glass of cider, it was so good. Will definitely be making cider again. Hot apple cider will be good this winter.
Now I am trying to decide do I freeze it or can it? Not sure which way is best, doing a little research and talking to a few people. If you have made cider would love to hear how you stored it.
Enjoying another wonderful fall day here.
