Apple cider and the making of apple cider are as much of our American Heritage as baseball and apple pie. Wow, seems these apples play an important part of our history, eh? Interestingly enough, President John Adams on just about every day of his adult life, started it off with a tankard of apple cider. When asked, his reply was, “To do me good.” Must have been something to it as he lived to be 91 years old. Now to be clear here, drinking apple cider every day may or may not add to your longevity, but either way, it will certainly make life more enjoyable.

The author of Texas Jack’s Famous Apple Cider Recipes has created a fun and very informative book about making your own hard cider. He writes in a true backwoods, Texan style as he introduces the book to the reader. You’ll get some chuckles right there. He then goes on to explain how much joy there is in making cider and how easy it is to do it. This book is great for someone looking to get into a very rewarding hobby or wanting to start a business. If you follow his process you could seriously be in the cider business. Or wow your friends and family with some great homemade apple cider both hard and sweet. The Author, Dennis Waller, also gives you over 25 delicious recipes that are tried and proven to be great. I particularly like the “Mango Banana Apple Cider Smoothie. I make lots of smoothies and I would never have thought of this terrific combination. There is a lot more smoothie recipes that sound great and I look forward to making each...
…want more information if you really want to make hard cider. 76 pages, several of them blank (most of those marked "notes" and at the end of chapters). Pages 59-64 advertise the other Texas Jack Books, 65-70 are bios of the original "Texas Jack" and the author. 25-58 are chapters on assorted "sweet" cider recipes…for me the most interesting and valuable part of the book. The "hard cider" section is covered in the first three chapters, pages 1-24, and gives a minimal amount of information on making the stuff. You could probably get by with just this book but I'd recommend getting "Cider Hard & Sweet" by Ben Watson (lots of apple information), and either (probably both) "Craft Cider" by Jeff Smith or "Apples to Cider" by April White (both of these do a better job of instruction on hard cider fermentation and educating you about apples). This "country boy" toned booklet is just a starter (a very basic one...
Wow this is a very detailed step by step process about how to prepare apple cider, from harvesting the apples, pressing it, to pasteurizing. Then after that, the recipes are also very good. Also details how to make hard cider by fermenting your apple cider (so it turns into alcoholic apple cider). This is a good hobby and may turn out to be a good business as well. Overall an enjoyable and informative read!
