We bought this excellent cider at Dart’s Farm near Exeter. It is a typical cider from Devon, made without preservatives or chemicals.

We enjoyed it with sausages cooked in cider (a good old Delia Smith recipe), a classic match, as well as, more unusually, duck cooked with cider. It proves the gastronomic qualities of this cider, with a nice fruit matched by a lovely mineral character.

Needless to say, it also proved a great match for cheddar.
