Online Talk on Apple Cider Vinegar
September 30 @ 7:00 pm
The Jesup Memorial Library will host an online talk on apple cider vinegar on Sept. 30 at 7 p.m.
Bob Sewall is a longtime organic apple grower and former president of Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners. After preparing his fields organically for two years using the Rodale method, he planted 550 trees to create what is now the oldest certified organic orchard in Maine still in operation. Besides farming, consulting and mentoring young farmers, he speaks to groups around the state about his organic apple cider vinegar, which was voted ‘Best of Maine” (Down East Magazine) in 2008, the only year they had a vinegar category.
A few of the notable Maine restaurants that use or have used Bob’s three-year-old, cold-aged vinegar include Fore Street and Vinland in Portland, Joshua’s in Wells, Primo in Owl’s Head and Nina June in Rockport. It is also sold in many stores and co-ops from Bar Harbor to Portland. In the cookbook “Vinegar Revival” Bob is mentioned in the acknowledgments. He has been written about in the Boston Globe, (“Blueberries for Sal and Some for the Crisp”) Bangor Daily News, Portland Press Herald and was featured in the October, 2017 Down East Magazine. He has also been written about in Michael Phillips’ book “The Apple Grower.” Bob and his wife, Mia Mantello, will explain how vinegar is made and speak about the many uses for vinegar from cooking to using for its multiple medicinal benefits. There will be aged vinegar to sample and vinegar for sale.
