13 of the best recipes for cooking with cider

Inspired by the our Vilberie braised chicken recipe in the inaugural Food Stories magazine, we’ve scoured the web for the very best and most delicious cider recipes to share with you.

Cider is a great alternative to a dry white wine in a lot of recipes, bringing lovely appley flavours to enhance meat and fish dishes. In the Apple County kitchen we find combining cider with some combination of cream, mustard,  and herbs can’ fail to produce a delicious sauce.  And a good glug of real cider helps create the most delicious pork gravy you could hope to get your snout in.

We’ve picked our shortlist of the most mouthwatering cider recipes covering everything from starters to mains and including a pudding. These recipes all fit with the Apple County ethos of getting the best natural flavours out of quality ingredients.
