Cider, Hard and Sweet: History, Traditions, and Making Your Own (Second Edition)

Front Cover
The Countryman Press, May 1, 2011 - Cooking - 160 pages
0 Reviews

A fully updated and expanded primer for anyone who wants to make cider and for those who just like to drink it.

With the rise in consumer demand for local foods and local food products, and the emergence of more small craft food and beverage producers since this book was originally published in 2000, this revised edition of Cider, Hard and Sweet comes at the right time.

Watson's expanded the section on the history of cider to chronicle lesser-known cider producers such as those in Spain and Asia; broadened the selection of North American cider varieties and European cider apple varieties; provided new cidermaking basics tailored to beginner and intermediate cidermakers with special attention to the new cidermaking equipment available; added new recipes for cooking with cider from notable chefs and bartenders; and added a new chapter about the recent popularity of perry (pear cider) available for purchase today.
