good grief - where does one go, to become a volunteer to test if cider gives health benefits?

That's fantastic. Thanks for the link, Loafer

Of course, if it's only cider apples that have the right chemicals, then it will do you no good at all drinking Magners/Strongbow/etc.

Whilst on cider, colleagues recommended the IKEA "pear cider".

The guy in IKEA confirmed that they sell astoninshing quantities.

We were quite excited until we opened the can. The non-alcoholic version was quite nice if you like the thought of liquid pear drops. The alcoholic version was beyond description. Both sweet and medicinal.

The lable suggests that it is drunk chilled. Frozen might be better!

I love cider and only order that or wine when going out. Hmm, all the fruity stuff is good then..

You love cider!

Where have you been!?

How come we've not met?

Do you know Ivanhoe, or Tharg, or Blake/Bloke/Biro?

Wow - you have to meet up for a cider with us sometime

WELCOME!! Do check out the threads on SE1 cider making if you're interested. Always great to have another cider lover on board. Any tips for availability of good cider in or around SE1 are always welcome.
