Slow Food: One apple at a time

The smaller wild pippins and other uncultivated apples make superior apple cider than the softer, sweeter commercial brands.

The group also shared homemade bread, cheeses, roasted garlic and end-of-the-summer vegetables.

Of the cider he got to drink that day, the youngest participant, three-year-old Max Blumenthal, said, “It tastes like real apples.”
