Apples and Cider

When I was a child and my family would visit my grandparent's farm in the fall, I would help make the apple cider the old fashioned way: with a basket of apples and a press. The cider would dribble out and I'd watch anxiously as it filled up a container soon to be sampled. Food can be comfort in ways that are outside of basic hunger; sometimes it is the memory that needs fulfillment and that is why we choose what we do.

"Crescent Ridge Dairy gets apple cider from Carlson's Orchard in Concord Massachusetts. All we do is pasteurize it and bottle it. Talk about local flavor. Try the Apple Cider heated during those cold nights. You could even add a little cinnamon or lemon for that zest. With a taste like it was picked from the orchard and pressed just for you, Crescent Ridge 100% Apple Cider comes in our environmentally friendly half-gallon glass bottles"

... so memory will be quelled with a cupful.
