Cider Apples


This morning I went to the forest to localize some crab apple trees in The Butter Valley of Soria and pick some of the fruits.

It’s been a successful crop, despite of my back, that has suffered a little. Local people call this crab apples “maguilla”.

I’m expecting to make some liquor with this tiny wild apples, an anise based spirit called “patxaka”, “basaka”, “sagarbasa” or “sagarmina” depending of the area.

Many people call them ugly apples, but I find them beautiful. Aren’t they?
