What to do with all those apples that are still on the trees or that have been blown off in the wind? Make cider with them!
On Monday 26th October, 25 people attended a great evening organised by Abundance Manchester and the Manchester Permaculture network at Hulme Community Centre. Over 200Kg of apples were washed, chopped, mashed and pressed to make apple juice and then cider-maker Matthew Veazey gave a short talk about the different types of cider and how to make them.
Some lovely food and then more apple washing, chopping, mashing and pressing and everyone went home with bottles of fresh apple juice – some destined to become cider and some to be Tuesday’s breakfast uice! Great evening.
