The weather forecast is for another wet month and it is not much fun working outdoors. I spent all of Thursday standing in the rain hand sorting out apples ready to juice. The best part of the day was the soak in the hot bath to thaw out.
I am sure you have all read about the poor crop of apples and Bradleys Juice is suffering just like all the other growers.
This month we are juicing Russet which makes a fantastic drink. We pick the apples late in the season so that they have time to turn golden brown from the Autumn sun and more of the starches have turned to sugar. Our Russet juice is never filtered so it is silky smooth fairly sweet and absolutely delicious.
We are also juicing Spartan and Fallstaff which we will be using with ginger for our apple and ginger.
Bradleys have recently started brewing ginger beer. Unlike most ginger beers we use fresh ginger and it takes us 7 days to make a batch. Our ginger beer has been a great hit with customers and the comments we are getting are that it tastes like ginger beer use to in the old days or like Mum made it without the exploding bottles.
With this being a short month we will stop juicing by the 23rd of December and will start again on the 7th January so we wish you all a merry Christmas and a fantastic 2013.
