November Foodmaker's Cider Making!
Oh wow. Baltimore Foodmakers has been having some seriously amazing potlucks! This past Saturday we got to experiment with a cider press built by one of our very own members. Talk about DIY!
Brian is the one who built the press (he's the one turning the press in the photo, and also the fellow who took the lovely black and white photos of the grist mill back in September.)
The bushels of apples were from Baugher's, a local Maryland farm. There were a few organic apples from the property where the potluck was being held, but there weren't enough apples for gallons of cider.
As you can imagine, the cider was incredible. Cold, sweet, and very full of flavor.
More photos and hopefully even a video will be posted tomorrow.
