Format: Paperback
I had wanted to try something different for the Holidays. I had always heard about Mulled Cider but had no idea what it was or how it tasted. What an amazing experience. I have to say that I have never tasted anything like it and it was absolutely delicious. The recipe for this is on page 193.
The book itself is softcover and describes in detail what you need and how to make it. It covers how to make the different varieties of cider. It goes on to describe apple types and what each is used for. It also covers vinegars and brandy. It covers wine glasses and which ones should be used. It also covers Federal Laws governing Cider (the alcoholic type).
The recipes are easy to follow. It describes how to make Applejack, apple brandy, herbed vinegars, Mulled Cider and more. A delicious way to try something different.
This book has 219 pages packed full of easy to understand info. It also offers several cautions with the alcoholic ciders.
