Brampton Apple Juicing Day

Postby MarkEvens » Sat Nov 20, 2010 2:53 pm

On October 30th members of the group set up apple mills and presses at the community centre in Brampton. This free event was also well attended by the public, several of whom brought large quantities of apples for pressing as this year has seen a bumper crop. The apples, which would otherwise have gone to waste, provided excellent juice for drinking and cider-making.
There was a steady stream of visitors with apples to mill and press: Image

then pressed in one of two presses: Image Image
resulting in lots of lovely juice: Image Image
