Making apple cider controls our life right now. I picked so many apples that they are starting to rot in our garage and it's crunch time. Making apple cider is a tedious process and so far, we've done it 4 times this season and made over 30 gallons. Justin says he has only one press left in him, but if he wants to drink more than one measly gallon of cider each month this year he better get a better attitude because he wants to drink it every day!
