History of Apples & Cider
May 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
At The Historical Society of Cheshire County, Keene
Author of Cider Hard and Sweet, Ben Watson will present a history of apples (and cider) in the US and focus on the importance of diversity and the popularization of heirloom apples for cider and dessert use — including NH apples like Granite Beauty and Nodhead (Jewett’s Red).
This presentation will appeal to anyone who wants to enhance their “apple literacy,” has an interest in local food and biodiversity, and wants to rediscover “uncommon apples of distinction.”
This presentation if free and open to the public.
