I'd only ever done the frangipani one before.
They're both infinitely better home-made!
One big plus was not being able to find the 'fêves' anywhere in the house, in time to include them. What a shame....
Just need to work on getting hold of some decent cider for next January ;-)|
Noisette, my favourite cider used to be from a little resto (maybe not a "real" resto, perhaps call it a bar/café) in Normandy where the cider is slightly cloudy and made by the owner. First time we went, it was boiling hot and 2 small glasses were delightful. Next and subsequent times, he'd bring the whole bottle out and leave it on the table! Massive temptation but commonsense always prevailed because we didn't live there and had long drives ahead.
Failing that place, I have recently taken to pink ciders and there is one which is superior to the own-brand supermarket ones but I'm blowed if I can remember the name!
It could be Brittany or Normandy cider but I served it to my French neighbour and indeed she liked it so much, she served it with HER galette des rois. Cider was fine but no, still can't like the gdr!
If you have not had the pink type, noisette, you might like to try it?
