Too many apples.

Hope this is the right section for this. Anybody have any ideas what we can do with the usual glut of apples (mostly dessert types)? I hate to see them left on the floor becoming wasp food, but there's only so many you can eat at once.

I can see you getting a shout from bodger for his apple juice/cider venture PJB.

Get them over to us here on the Lleyn and we'll press them for you. Bring plastic bottles and after pressing, you'll be able to freeze the juice in your freezer, where it will keep pretty much indefinately.
If you have kids, they'll go mad for the stuff, or you can sip it gently like us old fogies at breakfast time.

I'll vouch for that, we had a bottle of Bodgers apple juice a few weeks back and the jids were queuing up for it!!

Is "jids" short for Jonty's kids?

Sorry Mo, it's short for Jihads, just a little affectionate name I have for them.

That's a very generous offer, thank you. I'll let you know when I have a good collection and see if we can arrange something (if you want windfalls I have access to far too many ). I forsee a little cider making in my future
