Cider Days

The air is crisp and cold, and our thoughts have turned to apple cider.
An exciting prospect in this part of the country where apples grow wild or "go wild" all over the place.

it's an electric grinder with a hand screw press, and can convert to non-electric if Y2K strikes late....

Good times!


  1. Hi,

    I’m a Japanese who lives in Germany.
    I enjoy always your blog with beautiful pictures !
    It’s so fresh, that I can feel the autumn air in your place
    and lively atmosphere, making cider.
    I hear merrily laughing voices.
    It’s so nice!

    I love also the pictures painted by your father.
    They give me much inspiration.

  2. Hi Mary,

    The boys have grown! They are like.....boys--big boys :) I miss you guys so much. Did you buy that press or is it just a loan?

    1. Thanks Lizzie! Will found the apple press on kijiji. He and his brothers went in on it together, and they 'll divide the spoils in March.

  3. Oh, I'm impressed!
    And we have such a machine and make wine with my husband. This is common in Bulgaria.
