There is little in life that I like more than apple sauce on pancakes while camping. So Senior Management and I made some sauce. I decided I wanted to try pressing some apples for cider so I made a press & broke it. Then I made a second press & made cider. A full report is on my website.

Here's a video I made of this:

Here are a few teaser photos:

Great job. Are we going to get a pantry shot after all your canning is done for the season?

How long did you process the sauce and cider for? Hot water bath or pressure cooker?
I did some sauce 2 weeks ago(1st time), and processed (based on internet research, which we all know is flawless) for 15 min.
How long do you figure it'll be good for?

Paul, Here are some plans for a really nice wood cider press. I'd love to make this one myself (http://www.van-vliet.org/dempseywoodworking/appleciderpress.shtml)

Here's a Pic:


Hard cider or not it all has to be pressed. If you make some, I'd like to see a pic or two and what you thought about it.

Chris, we processed the apple sauce for 25 min (hot water bath). It will last 3-5 years. However, I plan on making it last about 10 months -he he

The cider was pasteurized in a large pot at 190 degrees (F) for 10 min. Don't let it boil. Then I poured my jars and processed it in the hot water bath for 10 min.

I sure wish I had a source of inexpensive apples. Fruit and veggies are expensive here in Vegas. If I lived somewhere that plants would actually grow, I would be interested in making some cider and apple sauce of my own. Unfortunately it would be VERY expensive to make it here. Crying

Joanne,

Just take a little trip North and you can return with some cheap apples.

Wow I wish I could get some fresh apple juice. I make hard cider with bottled organic apple juice. I started a two gallon batch this evening. Just pitched the yeast. Wink

No apple tree's in Southeast Texas!

Well Joanne. if you lived where I do here in NE Ohio you could get all the apples you want for free. Thier called road apples. You see the Amish live in this area and they use horse and buggies to get around, and the horses leave there trails, known as road apples Laughing . Not good for apple sauce or cider, just ferilizer Chicken Dance

Mark, that looks mighty fine!

When I was a kid, my Aunt and Uncle owned a 37 acre mountaintop farm in Crestline, CA. It was called Gunther's Christmas Tree Farm, but they raised a lot of apples too. I remember feeding the juicer. it had a wheel about 3 feet in diameter that turned by hand. Looked a bit like a water wheel on a mill. Anyway, apples went in the top, juice came out the bottom, just as fast as you could turn that wheel!

I don't know if they used the pulp for anything or not... Thinking

I read about 20 different recipes. In the end slow cooked apple sauce, sugar, cinnamon and allspice mixed to taste. Cook slowly while stirring until the apple butter starts rounding up on the spoon. Add sugar until it is half as sweet as you would like as it will get sweeter as it cools.
