Big Apple Autumn 2009

October 14, 2009

Another wonderful Big Apple Festival this year! We supped cider and perry at Gregg’s Pit orchard…..

We admired the vast variety of apples on show…

..and watched fruit being pressed ready to make next year’s cider.

My husband also managed to fit in a spot of cider and perry-making so we have our own little batch to look forward to – although I’m not very good at the whole waiting thing….. especially where cider is involved 🙂

    I love harvest time. We have been gathering our apples this past week, we have TONS! It sounds like you had a great time at the festival, enjoy the fall!

    That sounds so nice, especially the sipping Perry and Cider parts!
    We’ll be doing our family cider pressing next weekend… right now, it’s all about the grapes.

    I’d love to make cider! Our apples are mainly Bramleys, though, so I think it might be a bit mouth-curdling!
