Keeping Cider Sweet ~1875

Preserving Cider.

Are we all busy making cider, yet? We have two tubs of apples waiting to be processes – will get to it soon. I was hoping to find a cider recipe, but only found two for preservation. Very surprised at the mustard seed in the first. And for the second, let’s just say I’m skeptical of the eggs…

Any cider experts who can chime in on this process?

    1. Eggshells, yes – the whole egg? And then leaving it in there? Umm… Okay. I think it’s what they’re going for, but maybe it’s like the game telephone – the recipe got a little wonky when passed down from grandma. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
