Pressing Apple Cider

Pressing apple cider is a chore I look forward to each fall. I have 4 apple trees at the farm (and a neighborhood tree) that produce sweet red apples, and a prolific tree at home that provides me with bushels of tart-green apples. The combination of the different types of apples produces a flavorful cider that is tart and refreshing, compared to most store-bought ciders that are overly rich and sweet.

Roasted Sweet Potato, Rutabaga and Green Apple Soup

As nights begin to get cooler and with fall quickly approaching, I begin to think about making soups again. This has always been one my favorite fall soups. The richness of the sweet potatoes, a hint of rutabaga in the background, the tartness from the green apple, and the creamy-sweet sensation from the Maple Cream make this a well rounded and satisfying soup.

Last fall I pressed my own cider from 4 apple trees I have at the farm and it was so much fun. I ended up with about 8 gallons of cider, some of which made it into these muffins. I have been making these muffins on our Foodie trips for years, and they have always been a crowd pleaser.
