A few weeks ago I hosted a unique #ciderchat dedicated to the badass women of cider. Who showed up? Eleanore Ledger of Eden Ice Cider, Jill Lightner – food writer at PCC Natural Markets, Jana Daisy-Ensign from Finnriver Farms Cider, Courtney Mailey from Blue Bee Cider and Jolie Devoto from Devoto Orchards Cider. The women were on fire and we had one hell of an hour talking cider.
Another cider maker I reached out to was Dana Masterpolo and Michelle da Silva of Bantam Cider but they were unavailable that night. However, they agreed to be our special guest for this week’s #ciderchat. They generously sent me three bottles of cider so I am ready for another installment of #ciderchat.
Bantam Cider is located in Somerville, MA. Massachusetts is a powerhouse in the cider producing nation – sporting at least 18 cider producers. Sourcing local apples, experimenting with yeast strains and adding spices and sour cherries, Bantam approaches cider artistically and challenges cider fans to branch out from the sticky sweet ciders found in most markets.
Please join me Thursday 7/31/2014 on twitter at 6pm PST / 9pm EST for another week of #ciderchat.
