NARROWSBURG, NY (October 14, 2015) — The Upper Delaware River Valley’s local Slow Food Chapter hosts a Free Apple Cider Pressing on Saturday, October 24, between
11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Hans and Cornelia Kung are hosting at 1300 Crystal Lake Road in Narrowsburg.
Bring your own apples and clean containers to this first come/first served event.
Maria Grimaldi will talk about both the well known and unexpected health benefits of apples. Sonja Hedlund, from Apple Pond Farm, will be on hand to discuss easy ways to preserve the bounty. Slow Food Chapter Co-Leader Sally Ann Parsons will explain the Slow Food Ark of Taste and identify heirloom apple varieties that have boarded the Ark.
There will also be samples of the delicious syrup made from boiled cider, an historic
farm-based product made solely from the concentration of fresh, unfermented cider.
This will be a fun, child-friendly outdoor event, and attendees are encouraged to pack a lunch and a thermos of warm beverages. You may also bring an apple-based dish to share, but it is definitely not a requirement.
It takes about 15 pounds of apples to create a gallon of cider, so plan on bringing enough for a few gallons. Cider freezes very well.
