 Torsten Schon -

Cider is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented juice of apples. Outside of the UK it is sometimes referred to as "hard cider".   It comes in still and carbonated varieties; clear and cloudy;  sweet to dry; and in a range of colours from Chrystal clear white to dark golden.


Whilst primarily consumed as a drink, its attributes also  lend themselves very well to cooking. Below are some of the recipes on this site using cider. To find them all  use the search facility

Tips for cooking with Cider

  • If you can't drink it - don't use it in cooking

  •  When making casseroles, stews or sauces, reserve a tablespoon  or so of the cider then add to the finished dish just before serving to reinforce the flavour

  • You can use all types of cider - fizzy or still

  • Don't throw away fizzy cider which has gone flat - use it for cooking

  • Cider goes particularly well with pork, fish and poultry  and various fruit
