Fly Creek Cider Mill Cookbook

The Fly Creek Cider Mill Cookbook: More Than 100 Delicious Apple Recipes is now available for sale at the Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard and through the Mill’s On-Line Store.  The book is authored by Mill owners Brenda and Bill Michaels and published by Agate Publishing/Surry Books of Evanston, IL.  

Published to commemorate the 160th anniversary of the Mill in 2016, the cookbook captures the history of the Mill through stories, photography and a diverse collection of apple and cider-based recipes.  The 200 pages of recipes are divided into nine sections:  Basic Recipes, Breakfast, Starters & Snacks, Soups & Salads, Sides, Main Courses, Breads, Desserts and Drinks.

The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard is situated on the banks of Fly Creek just minutes from Historic Cooperstown, NY and attracts over 150,000 visitors a year.  This area of Central New York is a mecca for agritourism and craft beverage producers with the Mill being an important site for both.  Products such as Apple Salsas and Butters, Apple Pies and Breads, Apple Cider Doughnuts and of course Sweet and Hard Ciders plus Apple Wines are only a small portion of the Mill’s flavorful offerings sampled daily. 

The Cookbook will help readers recreate recipes, many of which come from the kitchens of the Mill’s Staff and friends own homes.   Recipes include:

The Official New York State Muffin
Cider Baked Beans
Thai Chicken-Apple Skewers
Fly Creek Cider Mill’s Famous Pot Roast
New York Cheddar & Apple Soup
The Mill’s Famous Molasses Crinkles
This Book appeals not only to home cooks in search of nostalgic goodness but also to those who are interested in the history of a resilient American enterprise and the farm-to-table movement.
