Ciderade Recipe

Traditional Ciderade Recipe from West Somerset











Exmoor is primarily an upland area made up mainly of small villages and hamlets. The largest settlements are Porlock, Dulverton, Lynton, and Lynmouth, Simonsbath and Wheddon Cross.

This recipe is taken straight from the handwritten recipe book of my Great Grandmother, who was born and bred in the Brendon Hills of West Somerset, and is at least one hundred years old. Enjoy! Comments most welcome.

Somerset Ciderade

Cut up four fair-sized apples into quarters without coring them, add a heaped tablespoonful of castor sugar, pour on one quart of boiling water and leave overnight. Starin, and serve in a glass jug with ice. Add a little sherry if desired. Soda water may be added if an effervescing drink is preferred.
