For this Memorial Day Weekend, we wanted to bring attention to another occasion occurring this month. May is Celiac Awareness Month. 1 in 100 people worldwide are born with the autoimmune disorder, preventing them from including gluten in their diet.
As gluten is found in wheat, rye, and barley, it’s an ingredient that is difficult to avoid! One of the great things about hard cider is that it is naturally gluten-free! As Woodchuck® meets the dietary needs of those with Celiac Disease, a gluten intolerance, or a gluten sensitivity, we’ve been able to try our hand at some tasty gluten-free recipes… with chocolate? Of course! Get ready to be THAT person at the party… and by THAT person, we mean the one that brought the delightful GLUTEN-FREE, CHOCOLATE dessert made with WOODCHUCK! This weekend, Give a ‘Chuck™ about Memorial Day and Celiac Awareness with our Woodchuck Cider Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes!
It’s National Grilled Cheese Day! A day to celebrate the beloved combination of bread, cheese, and whatever delicious extras you put on that toasty sandwich. Here at Woodchuck, there’s a combination we still find hard to beat… cheese and apples.
On an occasion such as this, we couldn’t help but call over to our friends at Cabot Creamery. As they have been making award winning cheddar cheese & other dairy products since 1919, we knew they must be the experts in the grilled cheese category.
Cabot pointed us in the right direction with their Sun dried Tomato & Sausage Grilled Cheese. Using their Extra Sharp Cheddar, sun dried tomatoes, and smoked sausage, we knew exactly what to pair it with; our Woodchuck Amber 16 oz. Cans.
Now available nation-wide, these Amber cider 4-packs are easy to grab, and perfect for on-the-go. A convenience store gem, the Amber tallboys give you even more of that same great taste. Ready to make this holiday epic? First, find your Woodchuck Amber 16 oz. Cans here then follow this great recipe from Cabot, and cheers!
The winter thaw is on the horizon, and sugaring season will shift into full gear. Not only will our Vermont landscapes transform into iconic scenes of buckets and tap lines, but it’s time for sugar on snow! Regardless of where you’re watching that sap boil, there’s nothing like the taste of fresh syrup drizzled on Winter’s remaining snow blanket. As we say Hello to spring in the cidery, we’re excited to embrace this tradition with our own twist….
Cider on Snow!
Part of what makes our Woodchuck® Cider Community so unique is the incredible creativity we find amongst our fans. Some bring the bottles into their craft, but some throw the cider right into their artistic genius! We always get excited to see Woodchuck used to make us delicious recipes, and here’s a mouth-watering one from our fan, Staci C. Cheers Staci, for these amazing Woodchuck Amber Cider Cupcakes!
In January, Woodchuck® lost a loyal friend and Community member. Lee Ann “Elle” Ritchotte was a bright and enthusiastic member of the food blogging community. As the brilliance behind Elle’s New England Kitchen, “Elle” was a devout supporter of Woodchuck Cider. Elle would frequently highlight Woodchuck in her delectable recipes, providing passion for our cider offerings and showing how they could bring new life to foods.
