Where is apple cider in the market?

Where would the apple Cidar (not vinegar) be located in the grocery store. I looked for it everywhere the other day at the grocery store and I'm sure I looked right over it.

Thanks for the help!

Apple Cider is often found in the juice section, probably on the bottom shelf. Some stores also carry it in the produce dept. The best way to find it is to ask!

If you mean cider vinegar, then you probably didn't see it, if it's the drinkable stuff (non-alcoholic) then it should be in the juice section.

If it's real pure cider, it's likely in a refrigerated foods section.

That is where our grocery store keeps it. No preservatives, got to be refrigerated.

What's the difference between apple juice and cider? Here in Canada, if it's called cider, it's alcoholic.

It's a blurry line between the two here in the USA. Cider is usually an unfiltered, unpasteurized and cloudy (because of solid apple bits in the juice) product. It's most common in the Fall after apple harvest time.

Apple juice is usually filtered so it's clear and pasteurized so it doesn't require refrigeration on the store shelf.

Some bottlers label juice as cider to make it appear better than the competition.

In colonial America, cider was an alcoholic beverage.

A friend has an old cider press, and several apple trees. I have one very prolific tree. We made cider a couple years ago, it's physical labor. There's a crank grinder thing and a filter thing. We pressed a dozen or so gallons. If you leave it alone for a while it starts to bubble from the yeast in the air and becomes "hard" cider, which means it becomes alcoholic though not very strong. If you leave it too long, it turns to vinegar. This stuff was so good that it quickly disappeared. Keep refrigerated or freeze. It is nice with a variety of different apples.

I think electric presses are available as well as the old fashioned crank types.

They sell it here at the grocers and at the farmer's markets in the Fall.
