Fresh Pressed Cider...hard to beat

Growing up we used to make apple cider each fall when we went to my Grandma and Grandpa Howe's home.  Such memories!

We were invited by some friends of ours to come make cider at their home on what turned out to be the COLDEST day of the month!!!  Seriously freezing!
 We put all twelve kids to work and before you knew it we were filling up jugs of cider!

The fruits of our labors -- we did 75 jugs of cider.

My fingers were so cold and the battery went dead on the camera that I took very few pictures.  In fact when we were spraying the driveway down to wash off the mess the water instantly froze.  Burr.  I love that the kids now have a greater appreciation for the work that goes into juice!
