    Homemade Apple Cider

    Making your own apple cider is admittedly pretty labor-intensive, but it can be a fun weekend project. Blending three varieties (look for whatever heirloom varieties are local to you) imbues the cider with a complexity and roundness that’s more than the sum of its parts. At the farmer’s market, you can score an apple bargain of ugly or mealy fruit, but avoid the rotten specimens fallen from the tree that are more bruise than flesh.

In this version, a tart squeeze of lime and a floral hint of basil brighten up watermelon’s natural sweetness. No watermelon in the market? Use frozen.
