We attended this show just before my vision went screwy. I was having problems on and off that day so we left early and didn't stay for all the demonstrations. But it was very enjoyable in spite of my problems. Enjoy.

I have spent many hours behind the crank of a cider press just like that one in the picture. Family used to head to Eastern Washington and fill the hay truck up with apples and grind and press for a day. We had neighbors lined up around the block to get a gallon of fresh cider. I'll never forget one old timer asking me if I was checking the apples for worms. I said nah that just adds to the pulp. He was not too pleased with my answer, I was about six years old. He still drank it though.

Big Jim, my granddad had one but I never got to help him but my dad did.

They had just finished the demonstration when we arrived at this show so I never got to see it work. The owner walked me thru it though and I really enjoyed his explanation.

Funny and a great memory. There was a little of a debate at the press when I walked up. At the demonstration they weren't stripping the cane before running it through the press. A couple of guys were saying they always stripped their cane before pressing it. A lively but friendly discussion was very interesting.

In our area, the Amish are big sugar cane producers. Some of them don't strip their cane and I can tell the difference in the taste of the molasses compared with those that do.

Oh...... that was a cane processor? Looks an awful lot like a cider press in the pictures.

No, you're right. I forgot about the cider press being there. Sorry about that memory loss but it happens with me more and more lately.......
