cold hollow cider mill

October 28, 2009

i was so excited to see that cold hollow cider mill was located on our little scenic drive from chester to stowe. i had a cold hollow apple cider at their Big E stand last month and i was looking forward to trying a cider donut this time around.

these apples were 40 cents a pound!

the neatest thing about this cider mill is that you can watch them press their own cider the old fashioned way with a cloth and rack press…they grind up a gazillion apples and press it through a ginormous heavy duty cheese cloth until you get delicious apple cider! the dried up mush is used by local farmers for feed.

of course we got a free sample. i learned that vermont is all about the samples!

there was a cute country store with lots of fun kitchen products to browse and yummy foods to sample.

i found myself gravitating toward the pumpkin and apple butters.

in the battle of apple butter vs. pumpkin butter…which do you prefer?

it was a tough choice but i went with the pumpkin butter and some apple cider donut mix. can’t wait to make them!

    I have never tried an apple cider donut, no, but I bet it’s delicious!! All of these post foods looks awesome, and I have yet o have any apple cider this season, crazy!

    I like carrot ginger soup too, by the way, but I’ve never had it form Trader Joe’s, I should try!
