Cider Pressing Party

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Robin and I had a great Columbus Day weekend at our friends place in  Lake Sunape ,NH.  The live just a couple of miles from both Mt. Sunape ski area and the lake.  You can see the trails from their house.

 

Here is a little video we cut together.

That reminds me of fall days in Northern Michigan.  

Last year Skier_J sent me some cider.  Its hard to find good cider out here. 

 

Its really yummy when you mull it with ginger, cloves and cinnamon and give it a little shot of brandy :D

I should have shot the spiced rum everyone (well most of the adults) was adding to the fresh cups of cider.  Lots of this is now fermenting and we sill sample the hard cider between Christmas and New Years.

Man, I wish we had apples this plentiful out here in Park City. That looks like a lot of fun.

My neighbor has several apple trees in his back yard, next to my house.  This summer we had two fawns who made our back yards, then front, and the whole neighborhood their romping playground.

 

The fall Apple Festival was in September and were going to go but things just didn't work out that weekend.  Indiana and Michigan have lots of apple cider, and bought a lot from the local farmers in my area.  Nothing like an apple fresh off the tree.

we made about 10 gallons of cider this year.  So so many apples. All of it is becoming alcohol  of some sort . :) free and tax free :)

 

The best thing about homemade cider is you are able to get much fizzier 'dryer" cider for not cost, the reason why producers do not make it is because of the Luxary tax on fizziness.

One of the things I miss in my move from Michigan is the apple harvest and fresh 'real' apple cider. 

 

Out here, most of the cider is like glorified apple juice, with the exception of Apple Hill

 

This fall, I've been enjoying some really good mulling recipes with brandy, or bourbon, or wine, or......

 

 

Its funny.........things you miss from home when you're lucky enough to live your dream somewhere else.

You're killing me....I used to work at a roadside stand selling fresh cider.  Apple juice has no resemblance.

This makes me nostalgic about living in the eastern US. Then I think of the word "snowmaking" and the feeling passes.
