In Search of the Perfect Cider Apple
Posted by Sharkey
Today on Martha’s blog, she posted about making apple cider again. Franny was really interested in the whole process and thought that we should make some cider of our own. I told her that I would pick the apples and wash them. I found my favorite tree and picked a bunch, however, washing them was a bit problematic.
1 I saw some really beautiful apples on the apple espalier the other day. Just a little further down the row.
2 See what I mean? These winesap apples are just gorgeous!
3 They have a really nice fragrance!
4 The texture of a winesap apple is nice and crisp when you bit into it, and it has a pleasantly tart flavor.
5 These are definitely my choice for cider!
6 I think I'll throw in a few green ones, too. Now I'll go to the flower room and wash all the fruit.
7 Oh no! It's Laura Acuna at the sink! I don't want another bath! I haven't been playing with skunks!
8 Phew! Laura is just washing apples.
9 I still have a funny feeling about this.
10 I don't think Laura will notice one bit that I'm not here to help her. I'll just go check on the cider press.
