Party like it's 1799

   What alcoholic drink was the favorite of our Colonial ancestors?  Not wine or beer but hard cider. It also seems to be a rapidly growing drink today. I inadvertently made some hard cider a couple of years ago when I accidently opened a gallon of cider and then put it in the pantry and forgot about it for a few weeks.  When I found it and opened it I noticed it smelled fermented.  Tasting it it wasn't too bad.  I poured it over ice and enjoyed the rest of the gallon over the next week.

  Listen to this NPR broadcast on cider.
