Birth of a Bottle
Hot off the press -- 3 Day Dog hard apple cidre, the newest offering from Living Sky Winery of Perdue, Saskatchewan. I had a chance to sample this lovely liquid apple at the exclusive Dine with the Stars dinner with Chef Moe Mathieu. (Read more about that elsewhere.)
Back to the hard apple cidre... The organic apples were sourced in BC (the Saskatchewan apple business isn't quite ready for this volume or price-point). It was fermented and bottled locally. Proof? Watch this cool video on you-tube shot at Paddockwood Brewery in Saskatoon.
Wondering about that name? Read the explanation on the back of the bottle. Available at the Saturday Saskatoon Farmers' Market -- $4 per bottle.
"Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens" celebrates the colourful people and recipes that populated our province. It follows my first book "Prairie Feast: A Writer's Journey Home for Dinner." Saskatchewan tastes great -- I wrote the book on it!!
