Vashon Island Cider Fest 2010 is coming. October 9th 2010

Dr. Bob Norton Apple Identification - Fascinating Work!

I always have the greatest time visiting Vashon Island and attending Cider Fest. This event was my very first "cider-centric" event 2 years ago.  In the morning through afternoon there is an apple tent showcasing the island's many old time and hard to find apple varieties. Got a mysterious apple on your property? Take samples with you and you will find one of Northwest's leading apple scholars Dr. Bob Norton identifying the mystery fruit.

Later on head over to Misty Isle Farms for some workshops, bbq and to taste the very best cider the Northwest has to offer.

See you there!

Here is the official press release info:

My grandmother use to buy hard CHERRY cider in a town called Ruidoso in New Mexico. This was 40 years ago, but I remember it being delicious... does anyone know anything about hard cherry cider? It seems this is a forgotten product... thanks for whatever help and input you give :)

Thanks for your comments. I wouldn't call it rare but cherry cider isn't super common. To answer your question a couple of our NW cider makers make a cherry cider. Tieton Cider Works and Blue Mountain Cider. I know Uncle John's Cider in Michigan makes one too. There is probably one or two back east as well.
