The Simple Life

I’ve been staring at the computer screen for 63 minutes trying to think of something to write.

Perhaps I’m making this too complicated.

I do that a lot.

Complicating things that don’t need to be.


The law of parsimony, economy, or succinctness. It is a principle urging one to select from among competing hypotheses that which makes the fewest assumptions.
Well, that sure is complicated way to say that the simplest answer is usually the best.
I thought making apple cider would be a complicated process.
I thought it would require big machines, presses, and hours of manual labor.
Turns out its much simpler than that.
It requires mashing and squeezing.
That’s it.

Homemade Apple Cider

5 lbs. apples ( a variety of sweet and tart is best)

1/2 lemon, juiced

Chop apples.

Place apples and lemon juice blender of food processor and process until mixture appears “mashed.”

Pour mixture into fine mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth.

Squeeze out the juice.

Un-complicate your life.

Enjoy the simple things.
