For most of its early history, America was awash in cider, the most popular drink of the 18th and 19th centuries. Originally a farmer’s drink, it was a staple on farms and plantations in the colonies and an intimate part of everyday life for all citizens from Revolutionary War soldiers to elite landowners and officials. John Adams drank it every morning to settle his stomach, and politicians gave it away at rallies to gain popularity. Although not much is know about the author, Jonathan Buell’s guide includes everything you need to know about homemade cider from growing the apples to building cider mills and presses, fermenting and refining the cider, converting it to wine and champagne, and creating summer beverages and fancy vinegars. This edition of The Cider Maker’s Manual was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes.
"All around the world, the public's taste for fermented cider has been growing more rapidly than at any time in the past 150 years. At its best, cider is a pure, healthy beverage that reflects both the skill of the cider maker and the quality of the fruit that's used to make it. And with the growing interest in locally grown and artisan foods, many new cideries are springing up all over North America--often started up by passionate amateurs who want to take their craft cider to the next level as small-scale craft producers. To make the very best cider--whether for yourself, your family and friends, or for market--you first need a deep understanding of the processes involved, and the art and science behind them. Fortunately, The New Cider Maker's Handbook is here to help. Author Claude Jolicoeur is a well-known and award-winning amateur cider maker with an inquiring, scientific mind. His book combines the best of traditional knowledge and techniques with the best modern practices to provide today's enthusiasts all they need to produce high-quality ciders. From deep, comprehensive information on all aspects of fermentation to advice on the best apples to grow or source for cider to instructions on how to build your own grater mill or cider press, the author's experience and enthusiasm shine through. Novices will appreciate the overview of the cider-making process that's presented in Part I. But as they develop their skills and confidence, the more in-depth and technical parts of the book will serve as aninvaluable reference that will be consulted again and again"--
Heirlooms, Modern Classics, and Little-Known Wonders
Author: Rowan Jacobsen
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA
In his classic A Geography of Oysters, Rowan Jacobsen forever changed the way America talks about its best bivalve. Now he does the same for our favorite fruit, showing us that there is indeed life beyond Red Delicious-and even Honeycrisp. While supermarkets limit their offerings to a few waxy options, apple trees with lives spanning human generations are producing characterful varieties-and now they are in the midst of a rediscovery. From heirlooms to new designer breeds, a delicious diversity of apples is out there for the eating. Apples have strong personalities, ranging from crabby to wholesome. The Black Oxford apple is actually purple, and looks like a plum. The Knobbed Russet looks like the love child of a toad and a potato. (But don't be fooled by its looks.) The D'Arcy Spice leaves a hint of allspice on the tongue. Cut Hidden Rose open and its inner secret is revealed. With more than 150 art-quality color photographs, Apples of Uncommon Character shows us the fruit in all its glory. Jacobsen collected specimens both common and rare from all over North America, selecting 120 to feature, including the best varieties for eating, baking, and hard-cider making. Each is accompanied by a photograph, history, lore, and a list of characteristics. The book also includes 20 recipes, savory and sweet, resources for buying and growing, and a guide to the best apple festivals. It's a must-have for every foodie.
