Once gain, ESP will have a cider press available during Tamarack Time! on Saturday, October 13, 2012.

Who: All are welcome, and it’s FREE. You don’t need to buy the Tamarack Time ticket to get your apples pressed. However, donations to ESP are welcome, to help support our activities during the year.

What: Bring your rinsed apples and jars or bottles. 1 bushel of apples (48 pounds) makes about 3 gallons of cider, according to Jeffrey. Please bring extra bottles/jars, if you have them.

No groundfall, please (County requirement).

  1. […] Veggie wash: a solution of 10 percent vinegar to 90 percent water as a bath to briefly soak produce. Just place your veggies or fruit in the solution, swish it around, and rinse thoroughly. Just don’t use this process on fragile fruits (like berries), since they could be damaged in the process or soak up too much vinegar through their porous skins. (1) NOTE: we use this method to wash apples for the Community Cider Press event. […]
