Country Living (UK) - - A Month In The Country -

Do you know your Rat­tler from your Dabi­nett? Join in one of the many cider-press­ing days hap­pen­ing this month and you soon will, as they are both old-fash­ioned va­ri­eties of cider ap­ple. Some or­chards, par­tic­u­larly in Som­er­set and Here­ford­shire, hold ‘pick and press’ days, where you se­lect your own ap­ples, then mill and squeeze the juice from them through tra­di­tional wooden presses. Ap­ple lovers can also at­tend Ap­ple Day on 21 Oc­to­ber, which was launched in 1990 by en­vi­ron­men­tal char­ity Com­mon Ground and is a cel­e­bra­tion of ap­ples and or­chards. Look out for events near you or or­gan­ise your own – a pack is avail­able at com­mon­ground.org.uk.
