    Apple juicing 1 26-10-09

    Apple juicing 5 26-10-09Young and old alike – great fun was had by all at Camel Community Supported Agriculture’s first apple juicing fest on Sunday.

    We managed to produce more than 20 litres of delicious juice.  It was shared out among our volunteer team, who diligently washed, cut up, crushed and pressed a harvest of local apples.

    Grateful thanks to Camel CSA members Peter and Jane, and to the National Trust, for loaning their traditional wooden Vigo apple crushers and presses. CSA core (!) group member Ian remarked later:

    “It was a great morning and the fruits (or should that be juices?) of our labour have certainly gone down well with my family – so much so that our bottles are already nearly empty!”
