This is how I made my own alcoholic brew from foraged wild blackberries. I use the term "cider" loosely here, since there is no actual apple juice involved. It has great flavor and carbonation, and was a fun and easy home projec
On a lovely fall day a few weeks ago, my friends and I made a big batch of cider. I’m fascinated with preserving food by making booze. I find cider particularly interesting because after the prep, the yeast does all the work for you.
Making wild vinegar is really neat, but what happens when you use that up and it's not cider pressing season yet? I tested out a theory using store-bought, pasteurized cider and the "gunk" left in my raw cider jar. Did it work? "Mother" says yes!
Boiled Cider is everything wonderful about fall condensed into one syrup. It's pure, distilled essence of apple. It's completely and utterly wonderful. And you get all this just by boiling a pot of cider.
Brush on meats, stir into crisps and pies!
