Pick up an Ontario cider at your local LCBO or take a day trip to a local cidery and discover what Ontario cider has to offer
TORONTO, Oct. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - This Thanksgiving, look to one of Ontario's quality craft ciders to pair with your Thanksgiving meal. Hard cider is the fastest growing segment of alcohol in North America, and Ontario craft cider producers, using Ontario grown apples and pears, are making and selling world class ciders.
"Nothing says fall in Ontario more than the apple harvest, and Ontario grows some of the best apples in the world for cider production," said Nick Sutcliffe, Chair, Ontario Craft Cider Association (OCCA). "Buy Ontario ciders not just because they are local, but because they are spectacular. We encourage you to try something new and pick up an OCCA cider today."
Cider is gluten free and not only pairs well with food but it is great to cook with. Visit the OCCA website recipe section for some recipe ideas at http://ontariocraftcider.com/category/pairings-recipes/.
