Hard apple cider

Made two batches of hard apple cider. Collected funky leftover frozen apples from trees around town. One is prickly pear juice and mesquite pod and the other is cardamom pod and vanilla bean. Bubbling away in their jars now – tucked in out of the light by towels.

Apple beer

There’s only one apple beer left we made last fall from picked-with-our-own-hands golden delicious apples. We also processed them with our own hands. The yeast we used produced a really dry beery flavor and it is SO fizzy. Yum! I hope we have another good fruit year! We get late frosts and can loose all our fruit blossoms in town in one sad night. Last year was a great fruit year, and if it happens again there will be fruit preserving how-tos like crazy up here. Keeping my fingers crossed!
