      I spoke with a contact here who has made apple cider and apple cider vinegar commercially for 40 years. He says fire ahead, no problem, and he told me about the 10hp grinders they used to use. Good news!


      Check out how much a cup of apple seeds weighs.  If you could find that article, I would like to see it.
      P.S.  If someone was going to eat a cup of apple seeds, he must be crazy, very bitter (go figure) and hard to swallow.

      A newspaper report said a cup of apple seeds killed a person who indulged on his birthday!

      > Can I ask please, is there any known hazard from putting quartered apples through a destructive grinding-type juicer pips and all? I have just read that apple seeds contain cyanide.. Is it true that I now have about 15 litres of cyanide-laced apple juice that I should not dare drink?
