“Fresh Pressed” Sweet Apple Cider(In Plastic Bottle, Always Refrigerate.) This truly is the king of Wellesley Brand Fresh Pressed Sweet Apple Ciders. It has the refreshing crisp taste of biting into a fresh apple. We use only the finest Quality Tree Picked Apples to make this pure juice. The important difference is our experience in choosing & blending up to five (5) different varieties of Fresh Apples to achieve this Quality taste.
After inspecting & Brush washing, the apples are turned into a pomace which is then pressed on our huge rack & cloth press. We feel this method of pressing apples gives this type of fresh pressed apple cider its excellent characteristics, Quality taste, and appearance. This cider looks darker & is more cloudy because it has not been filtered as much as other brands. This means more of the natural pectin’s & flavourful solids are still in the juice giving it a superior taste. All of our Fresh Pressed Wellesley Sweet Apple Cider is Flash Pasteurized & quickly chilled, before it is packaged into bottles.
It can be found in most supermarkets in and around Kitchener-Waterloo as well as the Toronto to Barrie and Orillia area. This pure cider always requires refrigeration and has a code date of five (5) weeks. A small amount (less than 1/10 of 1% ) of potassium sorbate is added to hold but not preserve the product.
Truly delicious cold, but when you heat it up. (simply in a mug in the microwave) this cider becomes absolutely fantastic. Try it with a stick of cinnamon to stir.
Wellesley Brand Apple Butter“A Unique Taste Experience” Over 75 years ago, we began making this preserve from an old Pennsylvania Dutch recipe. Using Quality, Ontario grown fresh apples and our own unique method, we were able to produce an Apple Butter of excellent Quality. And today, things are still the same. Our continued emphasis on Quality means we still finish each individual batch to perfection. The result? A consistently high Quality product. “Naturally it is called Wellesley Brand Apple Butter”.
What exactly is it ?
A semi-sweet spread, made from a time-tested recipe using only the finest ingredients which result in an All Natural Product. No sugar or any other sweetener added. No preservatives, or artificial colourings. The sweetness and wholesome flavour are simply the result of the method we use and the Quality of our ingredients
How is it made ?
A special blend of firm, ripe apples are used that have been selected for their variety and texture as well as their natural sweetness and acidity. Some are pressed into fresh apple cider, others are wholly steamed and cooked after which the peels and cores are strained out, leaving a flavourful apple puree. A combination of this freshly pressed cider and apple puree is added to a large steam vat. A small amount of bicarbonate of soda is added to reduce the acidity and help bring out the sweetness of the natural sugar. This mixture is then boiled until the evaporation process has reduced its volume by about seven (7) times. This concentration really captures the natural fructose sugar and the wholesome flavour or the apple.
What to use it on ?
All apple lovers and good food enthusiasts will enjoy the rich, piquant flavour of this preserve. However, it is fast becoming popular with people who are health conscious about the food they eat as well as people on special diets that are watching their sugar and fat intakes.
