This guide will help you appreciate apples the way Benjamin Franklin did, as hard cider.

Benjamin Franklin said "It's indeed bad to eat apples; it's better to turn them all into cider". Founding Fathers like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams agreed with him. Tasting Cider briefly traces the history of hard cider in North America and describes cider classes which, like wine, run from extremely dry to sweet. The rest of the guide features North American cideries, including Michigan's own Uncle John's Cider Mill in St. Johns. It also surveys different types of cider, recommends brands and offers recipes for when you want to do more than sip it straight.
