Apple harvest

Well, it's been a long time since my last post on here! Honestly, life has a way of interrupting all the fun of simple living sometimes! It's been a busy and intense couple of years with a few changes - the biggest being giving up our allotments. It was a difficult decision but the right one I think.

Anyway, onto this post ... it's the apple harvesting time of year again! When we gave up the allotment, we (ahem, okay, A) moved all the (many!) fruit bushes and fruit trees into our garden, except our beloved goldengage tree. They've all taken well and the apple harvest this year has been wonderful! We still couldn't resist scrumping a few too though ;-)

There are currently a couple of demijohns of Cripple Tipple bubbling ferociously in the kitchen with more planned. We used the usual recipe but did one demijohn with regular cider yeast and the other with turbo wine yeast. It will be interesting to see the difference between them .. taste, strength ... any excuse for scientific cider drinking! ;-)
