Crushers and Presses

Apple cider mills usually guard their secret recipes for blending very well. Basically you want a blend of at least two apple varieties mixed by weight at a ratio of 2:1. For sweet cider combine 2 parts sweet variety and one part tart. Reversing the mixture will make a drier cider. While the ratio remains the same, you can add more complexity and character by using more varieties of apples. Our local supplier uses 6 varieties and that's all he's saying.

    Homemade cider is best served warm with wine mulling spices
