ADAPT Apple Pressing on Saturday Oct 4th 10am-12 noon
Please note the session is to take place at 2 Tollgate Drive, NOT 2 Armstrong Close as stated in early editions of this item. Apologies!
As the weather forecast is not good, it has been decided to have the apple pressing session in the car port at the side of 2 Tollgate Drive- right on the corner (home of Adrian and Geraldine Leighton) only about 50yards along from the Lord Combermere Car park.
There is NO CHARGE to turn YOUR apples into juice. If you don't have any apples there may be some for sale there. The apples need to be washed and cut into quarters or for really big apples into 8 pieces. You can include peel, pips, bruises etc. but preferably not grubs! The juice is released really well if you can pop the pieces into a freezer for say 24 hours and then get them out about 12 hours before to defrost but don't worry if you can't do this. Bring as many as you like.
The juice should keep for a while in the fridge but for long term storage you would need to sterilise freeze or turn into alcohol! For freezing don't forget to allow for surprisingly large expansion. The ADAPT team will have tips and recipes if needed. The aim is to avoid wasting too many 'fallers' but of course we should still leave some for the birds.
If demand is high we may have to say come back later to claim your juice but we have a macerator and 3 different size presses. Processing a bag full takes about 20-30 mins. We hope to see you there and don't forget your container for the juice.
