I recently returned from an apple-cider workshop in Mt. Vernon, Washington. These folks know their cider! I'm talking about the "hard stuff" since real cider is similar to wine and beer. I think it's more refreshing! With some of the sweetness of the apples, along with less alcohol, you can enjoy it with lots of different foods. It goes particularly well with artisan cheeses and fresh bread. Think about Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam cheese along with a crusty loaf of bread from Tomales Bakery...yummy! You can look forward to some cider tastings later this year; we'll be offering samples to our guests and other local folks at various events here in Tomales. Cheers!
