This was a fun find — a hard cider that is not treacly sweet. This USDA certified organic hard cider produced by Alamar Orchards of Flushing, Michigan.
It was not cheap — Whole Foods charged over $5 for a 22 ounce bottle. But, it was very pleasant — mild apple flavor, a slightly creamy texture, and low on fizz. The name is also rather cute — “scrumpy,” as you may know, was a name given to cider a couple hundred years ago. And the J.K.? That stands for “Jim Koan,” the head of Alamar Orchards, or as Koan jokes, “Jim and Karen, if you ask my wife.” (Rating ****)

Volunteering to cook dinner thgniot’ on the BBQ. That way I can pour myself a refreshing Old Mout Pear Scrumpy, vacate the house closing the ranch slider behind. That way the squabbles of who’s taken who’s butterfly sticker/hair-tie/pink pen are a muffled background noise to the fizz from my glass, the sizzle from the steaks and the Tui singing in the tree.
