I went out to take a picture of the crab apple tree yesterday because this year's crop is the biggest that poor little tree has produced in 24 years. Then I looked down at the ground.
So my granddaughter and I picked up a sack full of crab apples (they're bigger than usual- I think that the root stock took over from the graft, actually, because they're also tastier), and I washed, chopped and simmered them to extract the juice. I also remembered why people invented juice presses.
I let the rest of the solids settle overnight in the fridge. I have some out of town things to do this morning, but this afternoon, I may make Crab Apple Jelly. I have enough juice for 2 batches- one plain, and one cinnamon.
Last Olympic Comment: As gorgeous and stirring as the Opening Ceremonies were, that's how screechy and awful the Closing Ceremony was, though the human torch was cool.
