Cider Syrup--Also known as ‘boiled cider’, this sweet yet tangy syrup is made much like maple syrup – but from 100% apple cider. It packs a deeply caramelized flavor that will surprise your taste buds with its powerfully bold apple zing!
Uses: Pour it on pancakes, waffles, granola, and yogurt; drizzle it over roasted vegetables; rub it on pork, ham, chicken, and duck before roasting or to finish in the pan; whisk it into sweet and sour sauces for tofu and tempeh; mix it into cocktails, sodas, and ginger tea.
Cider Vinegar--This lovely full bodied vinegar packs a real fruity punch and is a little sweeter than your average. Good enough to be sipped straight! Uses: Great for deglazing and dressings. Make natural soda by mixing it in bubbly water.
Switchel Syrup--This throwback thirst quencher is utterly refreshing and delicious. We make it by sweetening our apple cider vinegar with our cider syrup and then blending them with ginger. Uses: This concentrated syrup can be added to sparkling or still water, cocktails, and even used as a glaze for tofu and chicken. Think of it like a sour ginger ale. So good.
