As we embrace the month of November, we start the final countdown to… Thanksgiving! It’s that amazing holiday where we give thanks and eat until we drop. With endless variations of endless dishes, no two holiday dinner tables are the same (but all are equally delicious!). With that said, we thought we’d help throw a little bit of flair into that cooking. As you drool in anticipation over the next couple of weeks, make sure to follow our Woodchuck Wednesday Countdown to Thanksgiving! Each Woodchuck Wednesday until the big feast, we will post a Thanksgiving recipe that uses Woodchuck Cider as a secret ingredient. Wow those guests with these exciting and unique dishes. So without further adieu… the countdown to Thanksgiving!
As the cool Fall days grow shorter, we find ourselves spending more time indoors. Luckily, this is the perfect excuse to start testing those recipes you’ve only been talking about all season. That satisfying crock-pot of chili, that spinach and artichoke dip you stole from your mother-in-law, and of course a season staple… Pumpkin Bread. There’s nothing like the sweet smell of baked goods filling your house with a thick aroma. Pumpkin Bread warms you up after that brisk fall walk, and complements almost any savory entrée. Is your mouth watering yet? Well do we have a treat for you! Add one more recipe on that To-Do list, and indulge in the Woodchuck® Private Reserve Pumpkin Cider Pumpkin Bread!
As the breathtaking foliage consumes the mountains, and hay bales blanket the farmer’s fields, we watch the trees fill with red, juicy apples.
What comes with apples? The season for aroma-filled, mouth-watering, never-ending apple pie! For months, this delectable and flavorful dish acts as a staple for every dinner party’s dessert. Paired with a sharp slice of cheddar, or a smooth scoop of vanilla ice cream, this indulgence never disappoints.
With an endless amount of recipes for such a simple pie, each piece consumed during the season has its own flair… and we’ve got one more for you to try!
Our friend Elle over at Elle’s New England Kitchen is true Woodchuck® Hard Cider fan. She took our Woodchuck® Private Reserve Belgian White Cider, applied her passion for cooking awesome meals, and boom… this hard cider inspired recipe was born. It is sure to satisfy the hard cider drinker and the craft beer enthusiast in you. Modeled after a Belgian white or Belgian wit bier, Cider Maker John Matsonworked hard to create a gluten-free Belgian White Hard Cider. We’re excited to share Elle’s tasty recipe with you all!
I love picnics! We don’t have enough of them, but I’m determined to change that this summer. When I think of picnics, the first thing I think of is, of course, the food. It’s the heart of the picnic. I chose to make pizza because who doesn’t love pizza?! And pizza is perfectly acceptable when it’s eaten cold.
This one has Woodchuck® Cider garlic shrimp, bacon, pesto, and of course, a nice blend of pizza-type cheese. It’s packed with flavor and just as good cold as it is piping hot from the oven.
