Event

Making Cider: Fruit to Finish
Are you excited to learn more about the history and practice of fermenting your own fruit to make cider? For about 200 years it was the most common beverage in New England, until its popularity started to decline in the mid-1800s. By the mid-1900s the art and practice of making your own cider had all but vanished into memory.  Join us and our presenter Edgar Foudray for this great hands on experience. Attendees will take turns rinsing, grinding, pressing, pouring, bottling, and of course drinking fresh apple cider.  Our guide Edgar will provide all of the materials for the workshop, including the cider press and grinder, sanitation supplies, food-grade containers, cider fruit, and educational handouts.  Along the way Edgar will speak about the history of cider making in New England, what qualities to look for in the fruit to achieve a good quality finished product, and different approaches and techniques to making hard cider. Participants can bring their own clean bottles if they want to bring home a volume of juice and continue the fermentation process and enjoy their own hard cider. This event is great for people of all ages, so bring the whole family!
