That time of the year again…
Another lovely fall apple pressing, year 2014! Ollie, excited about his first pressing EVER was raring to go. That’s my guy.
He made about 50 trips back and forth with the barrels of peelings to the pile we set up for the deer (photo from last year). What a champ.
And my beautiful mermaid also got down to business.
I get better each year with set up-
Here’s the lot we did- with still loads more on the trees.
Can’t say these guys were much help with picking…
Especially when knocking over the wheelbarrow and forcing me to fight for each apple. They like to just take a nibble off each and move on.
And so we begin…
The beautiful day prompted shorts and t-shirts- our group got bigger…
no messin’ around with these guys!
and pressed about 70 gallons 🙂 I promise I did more than take photos!
The roast was searedCovered in remaining garden veggies and apples that had been seared in the same pan following the pork loin. I drizzed the glaze over it and sprinkled with fresh minced rosemaryCooked at 400 for only about 30 minutes till the internal temp reached 140°- we like it pink. Tack on sides of spaghetti squash and kale…Et bon voila… harvest dinner. yum.
Cheers and happy fall!
