Sailor Babo goes to the historic Meeker Mansion for the Cider Squeeze. Ezra Meeker came here and settled by way of the Oregon Trail, and thus our farming community was started.
They gave us a bucket of fresh apples of all sorts of varieties. It was busy even though it was quite dreary.
Sailor Babo stayed under the umbrella with Lavender.
The cider press is over 100 years old. Lavender feeds apples into the opening above Sailor Babo while Mr. L helps him grind them into a pulp!
Next is the squeeze part. Sailor Babo cranks the wheel and it presses the juice out of all the apples. The cider pours into a bucket down below.
Cider!!!! Lavender finished off all this cider before the next Sunday. Sailor Babo thinks she may have a drinking problem!
Apple Fritter!?!?! Sailor Babo is disappointed in the lack of apples in this fritter. Oh well, everything can't be as tasty as the cider.
