Juice fresh from the apples

.

A is for apple juice, straight out of the apple press, in Austria!
Helping with the apple picking and pressing was a favorite Arbeit for me last October at the Franciscan community farm.
At noon and evening meals together, endless bottles of our homemade juice and cider and the fermented cider the Austrians call Most were always on the table.

My cousin has an orchard, so cider has always been around when visiting there.

Lovely, - apple juice is so sweet. My father-in-law (on an apple orchard) had a press, and the juice was such a treat. Eventually some turned to vinegar, and that was always handy in the kitchen too. There was always lots of neighbours coming for Cider, as well....
