Homemade Apple Cider

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.
Fresh juice.

The juice is then passed through a cheese cloth.
Fresh homemade apple cider. Next blog I will instruct on how to how to can apple cider
