New Website Up and Running

Posted on



The new Tavy & Tamar Apple Group website is up and running! There were some issues with the design and workability of the old site, but now we have a more attractive website for visitors to view - and it's a lot easier for me to manage!

    Many years ago I tried Fried apple rings. Very tasty. But I can.t quite remember with what they were served with.

    Slider from the Guardian Website. I made this last year and it is lovely but quite potent. After you have made your Sloe Gin, and drained off the delicious pink gin, take the drained sloes and place them in a demijohn. Top up with cider and fit an airlock as the sugar remaining in the sloes will restart fermentation. Leave for about 4 weeks, or until fermentation is no longer apparent (ie The air lock is not venting out gas ) and then strain through a double muslin lined sieve and bottle. The Slider should be a pinkish colour and with a slight plummy flavour. It is delicious. Cider has a fairly high alcohol content but this is higher so watch out!
