15th October 2011
APMH, 10am – 4pm
Due to the huge popularity of the Apple pressing event last year when we were completely over whelmed with apples, we are changing the format of our apple event this time. We will have Demonstration Apple crushing & pressing and sample juice tasting using the apple press, kindly loaned by George from Epsom Apples, but we will be collecting apples to be taken for commercial pressing at Ringden Farm in Hurst Green, East Sussex to be pressed, pasteurised & bottled into yummy apple juice - a great product that will still taste great, will still be Ashtead Apple juice but will keep better ( for at least 2 years), and allow us to process far more apples than we could last year.
We weigh your apples (1.5kgs = 1 Ltr juice)
You pay in advance(£2.50 per 1 Ltr bottle)
Collection/delivery end October
If you have surplus apples please donate them, all profits will go to the Village Vegetables project.
Bottled juice will be available to buy at local shops in Ashtead
We will also have other apple-related food for sale and tasting.
David Gillott, chef at Four Gables Fine Dining, will have a selection of apple related food products to taste and buy. He will share his recipes, hints and tips for successful apple cooking.
Bring & share your favourite apple recipes
Looking forward to seeing you on the 15th October!
