       I discovered an absolutely delicious and flavorfull organic apple cider at the Jewel food store, recently. The brand is Organic -- muddy and cloudy and unfiltered. It's to die for (anyway, I think so). When I started making sorbets again, I was intent on trying to use this apple cider and, it occurred to me, it had to have a flavor of molasses. The only food I don't put molasses on is a pickle. I decided to use a dark brown sugar for the sweetener.

       I thought the result was exciting. It has become one of my favorite flavor combinations. Try it. Fine tune it or allow your imagination to soar and experiment with other secondary, complimentary infusions into raw apple cider.
