My two pear trees were loaded this year and since I like hard cider, I decided to make some from the pears. I wanted to use existing equipment and materials as much as possible. In the video, I show how I improvised for grinding and pressing the pear juice.
Now that it’s bottled, I have to wait a couple of weeks for it to finish priming before tasting the finished product.
I still have a lot of pears on the tree, so if this cider turns out well, I’ll make another batch.
There was a song playing on the radio while I was pressing cider in the shop and the copyright police shut down the video in 216 countries, so I removed the offending music. I also made a “Take 2” version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sd4rldve2F8.
