The Cider Party
By Joyce Furstenau
1 The Clarks live in apple country in the central part of Washington. There are apple orchards all around their home. This fall they decided to have a cider party. Cider is an apple drink made from the juice of crushed apples.
2 Mr. & Mrs. Clark looked at the calendar and decided on the perfect day for their cider party. The apples used for the cider had to be fresh and ripe, so they could not have the party before the apples were ready. Mrs. Clark sent out invitations to friends and neighbors to come to the cider party.
3 Mr. Clark lined up everything for the cider making. First, he set up the freshly cleaned cider press*. Next, he picked lots of apples for the cider. There were several varieties of apple trees in the nearby orchards. Mr. Clark wanted to make cider that was not too sweet nor too sour, so he chose several different varieties. He chose Granny Smith apples for tartness, Red Delicious apples for hearty flavor, Gala apples for their sweetness, and Honeycrisp apples for a balanced flavor. Then he washed the apples so they would be clean for the cider making.
4 Mrs. Clark prepared lots of food for the party ahead of time. There was vanilla ice cream for dessert along with some of her homemade gingersnaps.
