'There are three natural intoxicating beverages as old as man: wine, beer, and cider.'Thus Vrest Orton begins this highly entertaining book about apple cider. In a single volume, Mr. Orton captures the history, customs, and folklore surrounding America's most natural drink and the best techniques for making it today. The book's one hundred twenty delightful recipes demonstrate the versatile and historic uses of cider in punches, nogs, and nightcaps, as well as countless cider family favorites, ranging from buckwheat muffins to basted game and dried apple pie. Mr. Orton reminds us that apple cider is a wholly American invention, once as invaluable to American cooking as wine is to French cuisine.
