Yes, it’s that time of year again! The apples and pears are ripe, and ready to make juice – not to mention cider!
Apple Pressing Demonstration at Usk Farmers’ Market, Saturday October 19th
The idea here is to show how apples and pears can be turned into juice in a matter of minutes, and for you to learn how to do it yourself. It’s very hands on, and kids – as well as adults – are encouraged to turn the press. If you bring your own apples and/or pears, you can make juice to take home on the same day.
You can bring your own bottles to take home, or you can pick up a bottle (plastic for free, glass bottle and screw cap for a £1).
What you might want to do is watch the demo on Saturday, and get stuck in with some serious apple and pear pressing on Sunday.
I look forward to seeing you again for my favourite time of year – “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”!
Apple Day at Llanllowell House, Sunday October 20th
So you are warmly invited to bring your own fruit for juicing here next Sunday October 20th from 2pm. Bring your own bottles or pick up a bottle here (plastic for free, glass with screw cap for £1). Go home with your own apple and pear juice!
Or just come along to see how it’s done.
We will also have an expert on hand to show you how to make cider.
We are not providing lunch, but soft drinks, tea and coffee will be available, and – er – lots of apple juice! So bring a picnic if you want to.
The event, as ever, is free. But donations are requested to support Transition Usk - https://www.facebook.com/Transition-Usk-638496852898238/.
The event will go ahead come rain or shine; if it rains, we can still press apples and pears in the Coach House and there will be a log fire indoors to keep us warm and dry.
Parking and wheelchair access are available, but please share a car or ride a bike to keep traffic to a minimum.
All my best.
