How do you make apple,blackberry, and strawberry cider???

Hi, i was wondering if anybody knows how to make blackberry,strawberry and apple cider, i have seen one recipe for apple cider that is from a book in 1881 i think, but i didnt really like, or seem to know much of the stuff they were talking about in it , i really like cider, and would love to make big batches of it, bottle it, and put it in the cellar

You pretty much have to have a press or at least a juicer. Juicers are excellent but take prodigious amounts of fruit to make very little "juice'.

If anything I would make blackberry cider. Not just because it sounds best, but beause I would imagine it would produce the most juice for less fruit.

Not a clue about how to make cider but I have a kick butt recipe for a blackberry cordial. I've used the same recipe for huckleberry cordial it was good but the blackberry was outstanding!
