Just found a site with instructions on how to make cider.
The barns of Novy Mlyn used to be a starch factory. They grew potatoes, pressed them… etc.
The valley in which Novy Mlyn sits is full of apple trees. When we were there a couple of weeks ago, there were windfall apples everywhere. Czech’s don’t have a cider drink. Perhaps we could make one. All this would be a lot easier if the barns hadn’t fallen on the equipment, so we’ve no idea what’s there, and what can be salvaged and used as a cider press.
I just wish I was there this morning so that I could poke about, and try and work out what’s what.
