... br> We used a new tool this year to slice the apples before the chopping operation.. The idea was to slice them, chop them into tiny pieces… about 3/8” x ½” so that we could put the pieces in the press and press out all the juice…
We started out with my son, his wife, 2 daughters and myself and worked to get the rhythm of the actions down so that it would be simple to work through the 1500 lbs ...
