following you has taught me a lot of things but nothing has been as surprising or confusing as finding out that non-alcoholic cider exists! is it still bubbly? i assume not since you said it was basically just apple stock? i'm so curious!

ha! that’s ok the u.s. nomenclature is pretty confusing, but here’s my understanding, though i’m sure people will have quibbles. forgive me if some of this is obvious, i have no clue what your frame of reference is.

apple cider is basically apple juice but there are cultural and sometimes legal distinctions between the two

as far as i can tell, both apple cider and apple juice are usually made by boiling apples until they’re tender, and then either (in commercial production) pressing them with a machine or (at home) boiling them more and then straining them. this will get you a very flavorful, cloudy, highly perishable drink like i made:

at this point it can be sold as cider but if you find it at a u.s. grocery store (as opposed to a farm stand) it will have been pasteurized. it’s sold refrigerated and is only widely available in the fall.

what we call apple juice is both pasteurized and filtered/clarified until it’s completely clear and it’s usually shelf stable. it’s also more likely to have sugar added.

this kind of apple juice tastes much less good imo and is more of something kids drink. no offense to anyone who’s into apple juice lol

apple cider is often mulled with spices like cinnamon (or made with spices from the beginning like i did) and served hot for a traditional seasonal treat. in my experience this is what americans think of when they hear “apple cider.”

it is not bubbly but we do have carbonated versions of it! most famously martinelli’s sparkling cider, which is something kids often drink on special occasions when adults are having wine:

but martinelli’s makes no distinction between cider and juice, so this is what i’d call juice, they just call it cider because that sounds fancier i think. it’s tasty though.

alcoholic apple cider is not very common in the u.s. tragically, although some major breweries have started selling it in recent years so it’s gaining popularity. we call it hard cider to distinguish it from the juice. when i just say “cider” (as opposed to “apple cider”) i usually mean hard cider, but people are often confused by this and think i mean juice, even if i’m like at a bar, it’s sad.

so to sum up:

apple cider = fresh, unfiltered, delicious seasonal apple juice often served hot

apple juice = mediocre, extremely filtered apple juice

sparkling cider = carbonated apple juice

hard cider = carbonated alcoholic apple cider/juice

hope this helps lol

Growing up, you never really cared for summer. It was ridiculously hot, nearly everywhere you went was crowded (especially pools, beaches, or anywhere that offered any sort of relief from the heat), boredom came very easily, and overall, it was just an uncomfortable time of year. You never really understood the hype for summer (other than the brief break from school but even that perk disappeared with the passage of time).

Fall, however, was a completely different story.

You absolutely loved fall. The fashion, the weather, the sports, the holidays; everything about fall was appealing to you. And you made sure that everyone knew just how excited you were for the change of seasons. It was just one of those quirks that your friends had come to expect and accept as part of your friendship but none of your friends truly shared your excitement for fall.

Sweet Potato Chips

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • ½ Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Coarse sea salt

Using a madoline (or a very sharp knife) slice potatoes to ¼ inch thick. Soak in a large bowl of cold water for 10 minutes. Dry completely (I pat slices between a kitchen towel) before using. Arrange on a paper towel-lined plate in a single layer (if overlapping, they won’t get crispy). Work in batches if necessary. Microwave for three minutes, flip each chip and microwave for an additional three minutes. Cool on a wire rack set atop a baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy.

vegan apple cider madeleines

I recently wrote out a list of things that i’d like to learn how to make, that which will broaden my experience in pastry making and generally as a self-taught baker. the list was quite long and i noticed that i hadn’t made some pretty basic things such as madeleines. i bought the pan a few months ago but it just sat as most of my newly bought things do. so to show that i indeed need all of these pans i order to my husband and also to check these off my list and finally taste them,  onto apple cider madeleines that are btw vegan for my dairy free people, made with aquafaba and vegan butter.

i’ve also begun writing down my recipes on actual paper because although i love evernote, i like the authentic feel of writing them down and smudging them with my batter tainted fingers and hopefully my kids will gather up those papers one day and look through them and try to figure out whether i meant ¼ tsp or a cup and begin their own baking adventures.

as far as the flavor, the apple cider idea came because i wanted to make apple flavored madeleines but didn’t want to put actual apples inside considering their petit size. i wasn’t sure if it would affect their texture or not.

 I remembered making apple cider donuts from thefauxmartha (definitely make these!) and she instructs to reduce some apple cider to strengthen the flavor along with butter. i figured since you have to melt the butter in madeleines anyway this would probably be the best method to take and it worked!

within the first bite, there was a buttery, crispness relative to cookies but abruptly replaced with a sponginess familiar to a cake, the perfect emulsion! the apple familiar smiles through with hints of warm spices. i decided to coat these with cinnamon sugar like traditional apple cider donuts. i knew that i’d made a good choice in baking these and im excited to finally check them off of my list although im sure i’ll constantly revisit them.


1c flour

2/3c sugar 

1 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

6 tbsp aquafaba (chickpea water)

2/3c vegan butter, melted

1/8 tsp apple spice

¼ tsp cinammon

¼ c apple cider

1 tsp vanilla

cinnamon sugar:

1 tsp cinnamon

1/3c sugar

pulse in a blender until fine but not powdery.


preheat oven to 400F. put apple cider and butter in a saucepan melt allow to melt and simmer for about 3 mins then remove from heat. in a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and apple spice. in a stand mixer whip aquafaba until foamy. add in the sugar continue to whip until glossy then stream in the butter/apple cider mixture along with vanilla. beat for 4 mins until you have a smooth batter! thoroughly grease and flour your baking pan. place one tbsp of batter into each mood and bake for 10 mins until edges are golden brown. once they are done remove from oven and tap pan on the counter to release. allow to cool slightly on a cooling rack and then toss in the cinnamon and sugar.
