This gallery displays pictures of Apple Scratting and Pressing. The scratting of an apple or the shredding of an apple into a squish-able pulp called pomace is done to make the process of extracting the juice more efficient. The apple pomace is wrapped in cloth parcels and placed in layers upon the press. Each layer has cutting boards to separate the packages. The press squashes the apple pomace and the juice is collected. Ideally this juice will, over time, become fantastic apple cider. If the outcome is less than perfect, there may be a surplus of cider vinegar on the market.
