More Root Cellar Bins

KevinFrom the Cellar, Root Cellar3 Comments

Having been pleased to get rid of some of the scrap ‘destined to be repurposed’  wood out of my garage yesterday, I spent a couple hours of the cool morning to use up what used to be the main cold air return duct framing in our house. Bins for the cellar: 4. Waste: 0.

I’m also looking forward to having these bins come apple harvest time. Which amazingly enough, is not too far away.

    OK – tell me what you do with the apples wine wise. I have a great recipe that I make every fall if/when (I usually do) I get a hold of some small red tart crab apples called Pomette that I learned about when in Normandy, France, several years ago. It is easy and scrumptious… but not complicated. FIll a crock with the apples, cover it with vodka that has had a cup of sugar dissolved in it (usually it takes 1.75 litres of vodka, so it is a big crock – and then move it around a bit… (it must be sealed to be turned over) every two to three days and in three months it is incredible in a martini glass really cod with a twist of orange zest. YUMMY. I wrote about it in much more detail in a comment I left on Allan’s post.

    Valerie – I’ll be posting a fair bit of video during apple harvest/crush season coming up here in the next month and change. I make single-varietal apple wines, 100% juice, white-wine yeast strains, and have been aging them with oak. I’m a pretty big wine snob, and was absolutely shocked how good the stuff is. I built a crusher and pressing setup last year [I posted about it, it gets a lot of traffic in the fall], so I can turn 100 lbs of apples from tree to must in about 2 hrs, and am getting quicker. I’m looking forward to posting about this fall’s adventures, as it involves a few picking locations, a few different varietals, some different folks are involved – it’s going to be fun!
