5 Hard Cider Recipes to Get You Through the End of Winter

Sometimes all the inspiration you need to get into the kitchen and start cooking can be found at your fingertips. We’re big fans of social media at Cider Culture (check us out on Facebook and Instagram!), and we love using our daily newsfeeds as inspiration for ways to combine our two loves: cider and food.

With the winter weather back for a return appearance here on the East Coast, we reached for our smartphones in search of savory and sweet comfort food recipes to tide us over ’til spring. Dig in!
