Apple cider pressing in my parents backyard has been a tradition of ours for as long as I can remember. The press we have was built by my Grandpa Lagler. We harvested the apples from the yard, likely a tree that was planted by my grandparents when they lived at this house. We also threw in some pears from the yard too. The juice was as delicious as it always tastes, pure goodness. Fall traditions are a favorite of mine. I'm looking forward to applesauce next.
