You could make a meal out of this, but it’s so much nicer to share with friends. The little apple cubes soak up the flavors of the sausage and hard cider. Offer thick, crusty bread to sop up the juices. You can find mild and spicy versions of Spanish chorizo, a smoked firm sausage, at import stores.
Ten years ago, hard cider, the kicky adult version of a favorite fall beverage, was difficult to come by unless you knew someone with a batch fermenting in their cellar and willing to share. The strong stuff was perfectly legal but hard to obtain and typically not very quaffable. Today, there are at least seven hard cider producers in Ohio reviving this ancient craft in creative ways, and some count on local apple and cider producers to help them get the job done.
