Homemade apple cider

A couple weeks ago we got to go to some friends house and join a bunch of other families to make homemade apple cider. It was so much fun! We ate a ton of food, had great fellowship and we all got to take home a few gallons of cider. I think there were about five families there and we made about 40 gallons of cider with 2300 pounds of apples, that’s a lot of apples! We’ve still got a couple gallons of cider in the freezer, saving it for a special occasion. We took lots of pictures so enjoy!

  1. I had the opportunity to do this once. But… where did you get your apples? It takes so many, if you don’t grow them yourself…

    Yeah it does take a lot of apples. Our friends are living on her brother’s farm and they have full reign of his apple trees (I think they have about 10), another of their friends brought about 15 5 gallon buckets full of apples and they got several hundred lbs from a neighboring apple orchard who let them borrow the cider press. So all the apples were free we just had to clean and press the apples and bring over some jugs to put the cider in. Not bad eh?
