Our apple products are the result of many years of experiments with the goal of eventually being able to process all of the fruit that is not table quality. We are very close to our goal and feel we have come up with some exceptional apple products. We know many of you agree.
APPLE JUICE (PASTEURIZED)
64 oz bottle, $7.50; 10 oz bottle, $2.00
A blend of our wonderful Philo Gold and tart green apples. Processed at one of the few remaining canneries in Sonoma County, our juice is pasteurized at minimal temperatures, resulting in a fresh flavored juice that is totally safe and easier to digest than fresh cider. Available year round at the Farm. Not suitable for shipping but we do work with a couple of Bay Area distributors.
APPLE CIDER SYRUP
500 ML glass jug, $18.00
An old New England idea. Our fresh farm pressed cider is reduced to one seventh of its volume. The result is tart, sweet and carmelized. Try it with any apple dessert, on French toast or over vanilla ice cream with toasted pecans. Don't forget to think of it in a savory way.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
750 ML bottle, $8.50
A rich and mellow pure vinegar. We take the slow route and feel that nature's way is the best; aged in oak and bottled in its raw state. Don't be alarmed if you find a little of the mother floating around.
APPLE BALSAMIC VINEGAR
250 ML bottle, $18.00; 500 ML bottle, $34.00
Probably our most successful invention. A blend of our best aged vinegar and our cider syrup, it is not a traditional balsamic, but it has so many similarities that it seems to be the best description. Add to vinaigrettes and sauces, great for deglazing and drizzled over all manner of foods.
OUR FARMHOUSE CIDER
750 ML bottle, $12.00 or $20.00 for 2
Our farmhouse cider contains no additives of any kind. We rely on the natural yeasts for fermentation and the natural sugars for a little spritz in the bottle. We aim for dry and sparkling and we love it with our meals and as an ingredient in soups and stews. Not every batch is the same. The ones we don't like go into the vinegar barrel. No shipping.
