What is going to happen to this fermenting apple cider while I'm out of town? [more inside]
I've got a nice big piece of pork belly, and I'm going to braise it in cider and wine, as in this recipe. I've made it before, and it was excellent. Which wine (or cider, or even beer) would you pair it with? [more inside]
What to do with an orchards-worth of apples? I have access to a semi-abandoned orchard (it's maintained, but no-one uses the fruit), and it seems a pity to have all the fruit rot; there's still a fair amount left on the trees. [more inside]
I seem to remember a cartoon (might've been a Looney Tune, with Daffy perhaps?) from my youth in which a pirate song that ends up with "yo ho ho and a bottle of rum" was sung, but it ended instead with a conga-beat rhythm that went something like "yo ho ho and a bottle of" (and here's where the conga beat came in) "rum and apple cid-ER / rum and apple cid-ER / rum and apple cid-ER" (with the 'ER' being the beat). It's an obscure vague memory at the outreaches of my childhood, but that "rum and apple cid-ER" has become a real earworm for me the past few days. Any idea where this little comedy bit came from, and if it's on one of the online video services?
