We’ve been drying apples ready for the weekend. The intention was to bag them up and sell them but we’ve just hit a snag (apart from the one where we eat loads of them) – they just don’t weigh much!
At the current rate, which includes using the group and the Applemaster, we will have about £6- £8 worth of apple rings by the weekend.
It’s not going to make much of a dent in the funds. On the other hand it will be easier to store than the apple juice, which is beginning to make the shelves bend under the weight of bottles.
I’m still thinking about storage for the next lot – which is going to include 50 small bottles of Lord Derby as single variety.
We have a plan to sell Apple Punch kits at Christmas in an attempt to reduce stocks. We’ve mastered the art of producing apple juice, we just need to sell more than the four to six bottles we get through every Saturday. As they always used to say when I attended sales conferences – Nothing happens until somebody sells something.
I would buy some of that juice if I could. I can’t understand why they’re not all being snapped up.
Same here – we keep selling out of eggs but the apple juice is slow. May not help that the bloke in charge last year wasn’t pasteurising properly and several people had exploding bottles or bags! ;-(
