Making Cider,...

Sunday was the Harvest Festival at the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake. This cider press was run by old fashioned steam power.

I'm not sure of the mechanics of the steam engine, but you can see the steam coming out of the pipe.
The apples were pressed and the cider ran through the screening and into the pan. From there it was offered to the crowd for tasting. Mmmmmm.....good!

That's great! Just seeing it made that old fashioned way would make it taste so good! I love seeing things like that!
