Cider – The Inital Steps

In Recipes on September 7, 2009 at 4:19 pm

There are so many apples trees in Nova Scotia, and there are only so many apple pies/crumble that you can eat – so what do you do? CIDER!

First off you need to get yourself some apples….

Then we thought we’d core them…

Although after the first bag we gave up and just chucked them in any old way, after all it’s all going to be strained eventually!

Next you need to pulp them or bash them up…

Pulp

Not having ever made cider before we’ve been ‘making-do’ with whatever equipment we can find. We think a gin bottle filled with water works quite well…

Pulp

Fill up your vessel/tub/bin (clean) with the pulp, add yeast and sugar and leave to ferment

Been out and about walking in Lunenburg (our new home town) and throughout the South Shore… thought I would just pop in a few pictures of some of the sites/places we have been so that you’ll be able to picture them next time I reference them!

Marriot’s Cove Walk

In My day to day on October 21, 2008 at 8:20 pm

Last Sunday (19th) I woke up to the smell of bacon and waffles… minus the maple syrup still – there is just no convincing me, it tastes funny!

Headed out to a nice wee place called Marriot’s Cove for a long ‘fall’ walk. The trees are ‘absolutely’ (a favorite Canadian word) ‘amazing’ (and another one)! We had fun fooling around, playing with the rocks and munching on apples. There are millions of apple trees everywhere you go in Nova Scotia, no need to pop out to the supermarket…

Apple Munching - a new sport!
