Apple Sigh-Der

Have you had our fresh cider yet? You will remember if you have. So sweet, no artificial ingredients, made locally with fresh apples by a small company. Just like we like it!

Now, generally cider only makes an appearance in the fall. It is a fresh item that can't sit at room temperature for a long time, so it doesn't have a super long season. Generally the cider mill presses through March. So for a short time, we have cider! Get your fix now!!

There are lots of great things you can make with cider. Here are a few baking recipes that will make your house smell amazing this weekend.
