Organic Apple Cider

#1 Postby V VII Hero » Sat Oct 01, 2005 5:22 pm

I went down the road to the local orchard and they were selling their infamous organic apple cider. I just had to buy a gallon. man oh man, this stuff is amazing.

apple cider takes me back to the times of when I was a lil kid, climbing the autumn trees, and jumping in piles of different colored leaves.

Autumn is one of my favorite times to be outdoors.

You'll never make it cross country if you keep spending on cider, foo.

my mom gave me 5 dollars to get it for the family.

Ive been fasting, and the days I do eat, I am eating no more than $3.00 total a day.

all Last night and today I put a new kitchen floor down to earn some money$$. Im working hard. so some cider as a treat is highly worth it, especially cider I dont have to pay for :)

HARD cider is alcohol, but just 'cider' is like juice, but not all filtered, and SOOOO yummy! Fresh apple cider is one of my favorite things about the fall! I love apples, mmm and pumpkins.
I was walking through downtown Portland last night, and there were leaves falling down on my head, and I could see my breath....
I love summer, but that made me so happy. I love fall even more!
PS, only 2weeks and 6 days till my birthday :) That's the other reason I love fall :P

Yeah, I didn't know that use of the word either, Daywalker, but the Oxford English Dictionary says:

cider
n. 1. (Brit) an alcoholic drink made from fermented apple juice
2 . (apple cider) (N. Amer) a cloudy unfermented drink made from crushed apples.

In other words it's REAL apple juice! Great stuff.

I don't know if you've heard of Copella but they make the best apple juice. One of my best friends is the grand-daughter of the founder of Copella so when I go round to her house we drink bottles of it! They do apple and elderflower, apple and raspberry, and other delicious combinations as well as the original!

:D

apple cider is just real organic apple "juice". they just crush apples and put em in a gallon container.

if you leave em in the container long enough, it will ferment and turn to alcohol. which is why I buy it fresh. since I dont drink alochol.

yes, I am straight edge. and no, i dont consume hard cider.

It's incredible. There are some places here where you buy it at the apple orchard right when they make it. That's the best!

I love fall food!!! Squash, apples, and most of all mushrooms! I like stuff mushrooms, mushrooms on pizza, and this fake turkey recipe I got for the news paper last year… I’ll post it for every one. The gravy is so good. I just with mushrooms weren’t so expensive.

I’m not ready for all the rain that comes with fall. I went for a walk yesterday in forest park, and it started dumping…. I miss summer already.
:cry:
