According to the man on the radio, today is National Apple Day in the United Kingdom. We are celebrating all things apple based and what better way to do it  with a glass or three of cider.

I just got back from a visit to the very north of the country and was delighted to find some excellent local craft ciders for sale. We always think of  cider as  something that is famous in southern counties such as  Hereford and Worcestershire.  However the whole of the British isles are fine for growing apples and so pretty much everywhere that people live , people grow apples and people make cider.

… And that is something that deserves a day of celebration.
