    Anyone on here make cider? Going to plant a couple of extra apple trees specifically for our cider but which ones....I fancy crab apples

    I’ve made cider a few times but just with the peel and core of eating/ cooking apples I have prepared for the freezer so can’t really recommend any variety in particular.
    Sounds like a great idea!

      Ho hum....you might find adding some juice beneficial! We use whatever apples we can get hold of - our allotment site has communal apple orchards which provide most of our apples but they are all eating apples. We have a small orchard in back garden - Bramley and dessert apples.
      we then have a cider making frenzy - we wash and chop and discard any rotten bits then put them through a domestic juicer.
      We usually make enough for the coming year.

        Making cider is a bit of an art, you really do need some proper cider apples, I have tried and whilst it was drinkable.............just, you would want 2 of them.
        Have a look at this Buy cider apples from the nursery. Organic cider apple trees for sale. (walcotnursery.co.uk)

          Not really sure what quantities of cider you’re thinking about to make but last year I made cider by mistake. I aimed to make vinegar but put the lid on jar and ended up with delicious tasting cider.
          i used cores and peelings of eating apple. They were put in a jar with water and sugar.
          Will try to recreate my “mistake” soon 🥴

            Westons make a cider Just using Katy which is an excellent Eating apple so it can be done but I guess they have a fair bit of expertise with the millions of gallons they make. I used to have a cracking little book that had loads of different recipes and was really good ... I don't think I have it now I think it was this one ...
