Apple Day

Well, what a fantastic day we all had at 105 Scraptoft Lane at Graceworks first Apple Day. A big thank you to everyone who came and joined in with Graceworks first Apple Day celebration, we hope you all had a great time.

Dani Pattuzzi lead the day showing us how to gather, process and press the apples in the wonderful Oak Press.

The press is owned by Transition Leicester Apple Press which comes with a pasteuriser, so that you can preserve your juice in glass bottles for the year ahead. Once pasturised, the apple juice will keep for a year and still be far more delicious than anything you can buy.

We had people from age 2 to 70 washing, pulping and pressing apples and we pressed over 80 litres of apple juice. At the end we also made some fresh pear juice as well.

As well as all having an abundance of apple juice to take home with friends and family we filled a barrel up for the Real Junk Food Project for their meal tomorrow night.

We hope everyone enjoys their juice.
