This afternoon, Jacob and I went to a coworker's house to press cider. We got maybe 25 gallons of apples from my parents and as much as ten more from Aaron and Elissa. Add twice that from one co-worker's contribution and three hours of work, and we ended up with 17 gallons of pressed cider.
The first stage was washing the apples. Since none of the apples we used had been sprayed, we pretty much just chucked them into a tote with water, sloshed them around and called it good. The blue tote on the right is not full of apples, but is nearly full of water and has several layers of apples floating on top.
