Cider or juice?

By Carol Clark

One of those great mysteries in life:
What is the difference between apple juice and apple cidar?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Years ago I had this question answered on a field trip to Talbott farms. Which, by the way, is a GREAT field trip to take your kids on this time of year.



While the huge billows squeezed every bit of juice out of bushels of apples, the farmer explained - there is really NO difference. It's mostly marketing, at least in Colorado, where it's technically illegal to sell apple cider.

Apple cider is just apple juice that hasn't been pasturized. Unpasturized cider ferments and becomes Applejack over time which can give you a little kick when you drink too much. Which might be the perfect way to get those kids to sleep earlier in the evening.


It's the sweet, simple things in life which are the real ones after all.
