The Gift Of Life


In autumn 2019 I was sent some small wild crab apples from a cidermaker in Asturias which I stratified and managed to germinate this spring. I’m not entirely sure of their destiny at this stage, and don’t really care because they will grow safely in my care until I can decide what to do with them. Even if I give them away - they will make great gifts to frends with new orchards as pollinators because they represent what cider is about to me: kindness, international friendships, sharing of passions and stories. Gracias EL CUCHARERU!
