The Fly CreekCider Mill Cookbook
More Than 100 Delicious Apple Recipes
By Brenda and Bill Michaels
Released to commemorate the 160th anniversary of the Fly Creek Cider Mill and Orchard, one of the oldest and most beloved working cider mills in New York State, this cookbook collects more than 100 apple and cider based recipes.
The Fly Creek Cider Mill Cookbook captures the history of the mill through stories, photography, and a diverse collection of apple and cider based recipes.
The recipes in the book are divided into nine sections: Basic Recipes, Breakfast, Starters and Snacks, Soups and Salads, Sides, Main Courses, Breads, Desserts, and Drinks.
The mill, situated on the picturesque banks of Fly Creek near historic Cooperstown, attracts more than 175,000 visitors a year. The area is considered a mecca of agritourism, and people visit to experience the flavors of Central New York through farm-direct products such as apple salsas and butters, apple cider doughnuts, apple pies and breads, and of course, sweet apple cider.

"Nothing evokes the fall season better than the sweet aroma of freshly picked apples, warm mulled apple cider, and fried apple cider doughnuts. If cookbooks could emit the smells of the season, then this one would certainly fill the room with sweet fragrances of all sorts of delicacies from the orchards of the Empire State." - JIM ALLEN , President and CEO, New York Apple Association
"This book is a tasteful reminder that apples - the world's number one health food - are also an amazingly versatile ingredient. The creative recipes, graced by mouthwatering photos, make me want to head right to the kitchen and get cookin'. In sum: Yum!" - JIM TREZISE, President, New York Wine & Grape Foundation
"Filled with stories, archival photographs, and personal memories of the Michaels family through several generations, this book is like getting a postcard from a long-lost friend. Pull you rocking chair up in front of a roaring fire, slice off a piece of their Apple Pandowdy, and enjoy flipping through the pages of a cookbook for all seasons." - "BIG CHUCK" D'IMPERIO, Author of A Taste of Upstate New York: The People and the Stories Behind 40 Food Favorites
"This cookbook is a treasure, paying tribute to the Mill's long-standing tradition of family and cider making, and New York State's leadership in producing some of the most delicious apples in the country. These homemade recipes are a true celebration of the very best of New York agriculture." - RICHARD A. BALL, Commissioner, New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets
