Eden Ice Cider

Eden Ice Cider is in the Northeast part of Vermont. Its specialty is Ice Cider. Making ice cider is a unique process. Apples are harvested and kept in cold storage until consistent cold winter weather sets in. The apples are then pressed and the juice is set outdoors to freeze for six to eight weeks. A freezing and melting off process leaves a concentrate that is high in sugar (36 percent) and flavor. This concentrate is fermented then filtered and bottled. The result is smooth and rich, very similar to a dessert. It is slightly higher in alcohol content (10 percent) than hard ciders. Eden Ice Cider would be the perfect finish to a harvest dinner.
