Suggestions welcome - cider
« on: September 15, 2014, 03:28:50 am »
So: House party. Someone brings over cider, and leaves it here. But it's not really cider, it's Angry Orchard cider with Elderflower, or some shit. Really sweet. Five bottles.

OK, maybe I can braise something? But fuck, I don't use cider. So, how would you mitigate the floral, apple-y sweetness into something worth eating?  Otherwise, I'll just dump it.

You give it to girls for drinking?

Me-type girls, perhaps?

I'll leave it outside my door.  Yours if you want it.

Cider is an abomination.  Elderflower infused cider more than most. 

I don't think you can even make it into vinegar when it's in that state, so I say throw it out the airlock.

That sounds awful.

I like a nice dry cider but most of the new ciders on the market right now are like alcoholic soda pop. You might as well drink this shit:

Oh and I don't know about the elderflower but I might see how it was as a reduction sauce for ham. Throw the ham in the oven, pinch of cinnamon, dump a bottle or two of cider over it, serve when the liquids have reduced to a thin syrup consistency.

As far as Angry Orchard ones go, the Elderflower one is meh anyway. However commercial ciders are sulfited, so you couldn't get vinegar even if you tried.

Use it on pork with apples and onions.

Drop it off on a random stoop in Providence. It will be taken care of.  :lulz:

If you still have it it's probably cold enough now to make applejack, provided that the preservatives don't screw with the water content freezing.
