  • It’s jolly juicing time

    Posted on October 21st, 2009 charlotte No comments

    We’ve located not just one but two fruit crushers and presses so we’re looking forward to Camel CSA’s apple juicing event this Sunday.

    apple-harvest-camel csa 18-10-09All members and their families are very welcome – children particularly so.  Just come to our site behind St Kew Harvest Farm Shop between 10 a.m and 1 p.m.

    Everyone will be able to have a hand in washing, cutting up, crushing and pressing the apples.

    Please bring a clean plastic container to put the juice in.  You can either keep it in the fridge and drink it within 48 hours or freeze it in the container.

    Wanted – more apples

    We picked loads of apples last week in St Mabyn.  Thanks to Anne, Callum, Caroline, Charlotte, Kitty, Mark M, Mark N, Mike H, Mike S, Robert and Tess.   

    The best of the fruit is going in this week’s share of the harvest.  The remainder will be turned into juice.

    So if if you know of any surplus apples going spare, please get in touch.  Even better, bring them along with you.
