1 PM Apple Cider Press — Dyckman Farmhouse Museum Alliance Board President, Don Rice, will take you through a demonstration of how an apple cider press works using the Dyckman apples from Boscobel House and Gardens. This classic American drink was the most popular beverage of the colonial period, because pressing and fermenting apple juice was the easiest way to preserve the large fruit harvest.

2 PM Apple Madness — Are you ready to make some apple cider at home? Don’t have a cider press? Join Fabiola Cáceres in the Garden Kitchen Lab kitchen at Dyckman Farmhouse Museum to find out an easy way to make this special treat. (RECIPE HERE) Want an apple dessert to go with your cider?
