an apple a day

Sometimes traditions are great
 ...and sometimes they aren't.

Over the past decades, the great cider-making customs and cider apple trees have dwindled here in these United States.

But all is not lost.  Modern cider makers can rejoice in the blank slate this has created.

With no stingy heritage to ruthlessly govern us, we’re free to experiment with new techniques, new ingredients, and reach for new possibilities.

Just like the hokey-pokey at a wedding, that's what it's all about.
