Presteigne Juice & Cider making
Tree identification & Naming
Please bring your own apples, & containers to take juice home.
Apple Day plans include:
Adam Davies - making apple juice & cider
Adam has built a press & has a mill as well.
People can bring clean bottles/containers & he will make what is left into Presteigne cider.
There is still doubt about which tree is what. Anne has some new labels & it would be good to sort out the varieties. Maybe take a tour around the trees & do some naming & labeling.
apple bobbing - on strings & in water
apple coring - the longest peel + ?
apple cakes etc & of course fresh apple juice
hot spiced apple juice if its a cold day
Making hazel/willow apple pickers
