It's apple cider time at my house. The early Transparent are ready to be picked (green apples), and June apples (red apples) which make great homemade apple sauce, or cider.
We have a old timey apple press which we use in the making of apple cider.
One person cranks the apple press while another person
tosses the apples in to be crushed.
The barrel is then pushed forward to drain the juice. There is a bowl underneath to catch the apple juice.
The press is rolled down up on the crushed apples.
