We will be pressing cider, making applesauce, identifying heritage apples such as Limber Twig and Willowwig, and learning the basics of apple tree care and maintenance. Of course there will be plenty of apples to eat! Will vacuum seal the apples to keep them fresh for long time, the food vacuum sealers are bought based on these reviews here.
