apple juice anyone???

Dave yet again talked me into helping with his crazy projects! We picked apples a couple weeks ago and now that the weather is cold it was time to do something with them. What you ask well make apple juice of course!

so we headed down to Jody's cuz he has the apple press. What else would I want to do on a chilly Saturday morning??

And yet again I have put the pics in a weird order!? He is Grandpa trying the finished product!

And Dave daring his big brother to give it try! " its good try it!" neither one puckered to much~ though I wasn't brave enough!

The Juice being squeezed out into the jar.

we had to cut the apples first! I think we started with 6 buckets full (big buckets)!

Pressing the apples to make the juice. It only took about 2 1/2 hours , and by the end when the sun came out we were wishing for the cold again, because the bees came out. We ended up with about 6 1/2 gallons of juice, now what to do with it???
