Apple Cider Day
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but a glass of apple cider can rejuvenate the soul. Every year on November 18, we celebrate National Apple Cider Day. The origin of apple cider dates back to 3,000 B.C., when the Celts in Britain made the beverage using crabapples. Apple cider is made from freshly harvested apples that are mashed and made to resemble applesauce, but pressed to extract fresh juice and fermented. After the fermentation process is done, we get the sweet and spicy apple cider. Due to the high demand for this delicious drink, small farmers started selling their orchards to commercial cider producers in the 19th century. The best way to celebrate Apple Cider Day is to head out to a local cider mill, farm, or find a locally produced offering of apple cider.
