For the Love of Food – Apple Cider

Why is cider good for you, and how is it made – find out today!

by Jen Davis – October 13, 2016

It’s fall! Which means leaves are changing and time for fall foods! I’m talking pumpkin… sweet potato…. pears, cranberries, and apples!
The great thing about the bright yellow-orange varieties of squash, sweet potatoes and pumpkin, is that they contain beta-carotene, which is a provitamin A carotenoid. Carotenoids act as antioxidants. These are substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage. You know what else is especially rich in antioxidants? Apples! Do you know the difference between cider and apple juice? Apple juice is filtered to remove solids and it is pasteurized so stays fresh longer. Because fresh Cider has not been filtered, it needs to be stored in the refrigerator. We have a variety of apples grown, locally. Today we will visit a local, family owned apple cider mill.

Mansfield Cider Mill provided a demonstration of their work and what it takes to make apple cider, from start to finish. This is their 70th year in business! Watch today’s feature video to see how it’s made. If you would like to visit the Mansfield Cider Mill, the address is listed below. You can also visit their Facebook page.
