Nibbles: cider, tortes and holiday cookies

Cider for all

The Blue Hill Food Co-Op invites folks to bring from ¼ to 3 bushels of apples and clean, empty gallons containers to an apple pressing to create a “community blend” from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28, at 5 Star Nursery & Orchard at 853 Bay Road in North Brooklin. Pre-registration is required.

The amount of apples you bring determines how much cider you take home. Empty gallon containers will be available for purchase for $1 each. Dress for the weather. To sign up, call Beth Dickens at 374-2165.
