Harris Teeter disappoints

Cider. Cide. Er. We have apple juice. Stocker probably thought I was nuts as I held up various bottles of apple juice to the light to find the most opaque one. This one did not end up tasting like cider. Too sweet– maybe made from Red Delicious?– with cinnamon undertones. Should be tart. That tell-tale smack of preservatives. Also tried an “organic” apple-pear mix because sometimes pear cider and apple cider taste similar. This was more tart, but almost clear in color, and tasted sort of like a Granny Smith flavored lollipop. Might be good mixed with vodka (but isn’t everything?)

I must say though that I am impressed with the local Virginia apple, the Stayman. Of all apple varieties I like the Pink Lady. Of WNY’s large selection (most of which are very small apples) I like the Cortland.

    I remember many stops in Elijah, GA, which is in the North Georgia mountains. Tons of apples. Actually, a little store had EVERYTHING made out of apples. You could find apple donuts, muffins, cakes, pies (duh), and of course, cider.

    Sometimes I miss home too…

    Best cider you’ll get in CVille is by zipping up to Carter Mountain (just 15 minutes from the Downtown Mall, out 20) and getting it from the orchard there. Relatively cheap, too. Mmmmmm.

    Google it for a website, directions, hours, etc.

    Thanks for the recommendation, Sandra. I’ll try to get there this weekend. Mmm.
