Cider After Dark - episode 25 - 30 recap

Since we have opened up for the 2019 apples season, Diane and I (Kim) have continued with our tradition of "Cider After Dark."  Basically we take our unpasteurized, unpreserved apple cider and mix it with different alcohol's to see what delicious cocktail we can come up with next.  

You can see all the episodes of "Cider After Dark' by heading to our YouTube Channel - Cider After Dark.  You can also get your very own "Cider After Dark" swag on our zazzle site.

I wanted to create this post to summarize the different beverages we've tried so far this season and to make sure you watch at least the one where we make mojitos.  

Episode 25 - Diane and I mixed cider with Black Magic Rum.  We also saw if bitters made it better, worse, or didn't really change anything.

Episode 26 - Diane and I mixed apple cider with Double Chocolate 360.  Again, we tried it with bitters - you'll have to watch to see what we thought!

Episode 27 - the Mojito episode.  I think this may be my favorite episode of Cider After Dark yet!  I seriously still laugh so hard I cry when I watch it!  Be sure not to miss this one.

Episode 28 - Apple Pie on the Rocks ... a bit of cider, cinnamon, and vanilla - check out what we thought!

Episode 29 & Episode 30 go together.  Episode 29 is where we start the prep work for our apple cider sangria.  The apples need to marinate in the fireball for awhile before we finish off the recipe.  In Episode 30 we add the rest of the sangria mixture and give it a try!

I have an idea what we're going to try mixing this week but I'm not 100% sure yet.  Feel free to leave a comment if you know of an alcohol we should try mixing with alcohol ... just make sure it's not a milky product - that tends to curdle (see episode 8 ... whoops!)

Kraut Day 2019

My father-in-law ran out of kraut so they decided to grow cabbage this year.  Which means – we’re bringing back out KRAUT DAY!

Have you ever wondered how Sauerkraut is made?  Well – you’re opportunity to find out and even make your very own is here!

Kraut Day at Lapacek's Orchard
What:  Kraut Day
When:  Saturday, August 24th from 1pm to 4pm
Where:  Lapacek’s Orchard, N1959 Kroncke Road, Poynette, WI

Kraut Day at Lapacek's Orchard

    What’s Happening?

    • Help make the kraut (sauerkraut).
    • Take home a bucket of kraut (about 6 quarts) to ferment at home.
      Fermentation takes 6 to 8 weeks.
    • You'll leave with instructions to can or freeze your kraut after
      fermentation is complete. Or just put it in the frig and eat it over
      the next few months.
    • Cost is $15 per bucket of kraut.
    • Bring the whole family. Make one bucket or several. Stop by anytime between 1 to 4 on Saturday, August 24th to make your bucket or buckets. 
    This year Kraut day will be run by our brother-in-law Matt!

    Happy Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from our entire family!

    Just like that, the 2018 apple season has come to an end.  Thank you to all who have come out and supported our farm and family.  It’s because of all of you we can continue to keep living this dream of ours.  We couldn’t be more thankful for that.

    If you have any memories from the 2018 apple season or favorite things we did (*clears throat* “Cider After Dark”)  feel free to leave a comment!  We’d love to hear from you! I know we all enjoyed the season and have plans already to make next season even more magical!

    Keep an eye on this blog, facebook, the newsletter, instagram, etc if we have any fun things happening “off season”.  I’m not sure if we will or not yet but you just never know what I’ll dream up next!
