All about apples

pomme1.jpgThe Isigny-Grandcamp area is renowned for its dairy production; however its apples and its famous "Isigny cider" are also well worthy of note.

Any self-respecting Norman farmer has always prided himself in harvesting his apples and distilling his own "brew". Home produced cider-based products have been part of Normandy country life over the generations. Today, specific laws govern the production of alcoholic beverages and this tradition has somewhat disappeared, but not regular consumption!

 

pomme2.jpgMany cider farms are still operational. Normandy remains France's leading cider and cider apple production region.  It is equally renowned for its liqueur, AOC calvados and pommeau (pommel) production.

And apples are not only used to make cider. They are also delicious simply ripe and raw, or cooked as an accompaniment for a meat dish, or to enhance a flavoursome cider sauce.

To take full advantage of Normandy's many facets, it would be a pity to leave without visiting a cider farm and enjoying a taste of some fresh apple juice, cider, calvados and pommeau (with due moderation of course).
