We took another trip to Hergott's Cider Mill this evening to stock up before they close near the end of the month. They are located in Waterloo, ON which is a hop, skip and a jump from our fair city. It is a bit of a shame that we just found them last month and they will be retiring this season. I hope someone will take over the operation because I am not sure if we will find another place that produces raw cider.
On today's shopping list was 20 liters (5.25gallons) of unpasteurized, preservative free cider. The cider was pressed from Empire apples and was pressed well we waited. One jug will be drank fresh, one will be used for cider jelly and the last three will be froze for a later batch of hard cider. I may get some more before they close for the freezer, I am a bit of a cider junky.... I have always loved the stuff.
Other local consumables include two 500g jars of natures blend honey, a 500g jar of creamed wildflower honey, a small jar of pear butter and a 2 liter (1/2 gallon) jug of cider vinegar.
