Severn Cider Recipes created by Nick Bull founder Severn Cider

Ciders and Perrys all have their own distinctive flavour.
These recipes have been developed using
either Severn Cider or Perry, producing very tasty dishes.

Chicken in Perry

Madgett’s Farm free-range chicken (4lb / 1.75 kg)
500ml Perry
1 onion
     Handful of tarragon (Russian if possible)
    Dried wild mushrooms
 Pepper and salt


Pre-heat oven to 2200C. Stuff the chicken cavity with onion, mushrooms and tarragon. Put the chicken in a large saucepan, breast-side down, cover with the Perry. Add the chicken giblets to the pan if you have them. Poach for about 1hr - until the juice runs clear when you pierce the chicken thigh. Transfer to a roasting tin and rub with salt. Roast in pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes. The poaching fluid (without giblets) makes a great stock - thicken to make gravy. This recipe works equally well with pheasant and partridge.

Nick’s Tasty Ham

1kg Smoked Ham
500 ml Dry Cider
2 bay leaves (fresh if possible)
3 cloves of garlic, keep in the skin, but cut off top and tail
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
4 or 5 cloves
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar, or honey
No salt

Put ham in small to medium-sized saucepan and cover with the cider. Add all other ingredients. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 hour. Cool rapidly in its cooking juices.
Remove from cooking fluid. Serve either hot or cold - we prefer cold. 

Mussels in Perry

1kg Mussels
One bottle of Severn Cider Perry
3 cloves of garlic
A few sprigs of thyme

"I just substituted perry as I didn't have any wine.  They were the best mussels ever, including those we'd eaten in restaurants in France! Absolutely fabulous - will never cook mussels in white wine again." Pam

Severn Cider Punch

1 litre Severn Cider
½ litre Lemonade
1 wine glass Brandy
Grated Root Ginger (1cm – or to your taste)
Slices of fresh lemon (1/2 lemon) and chopped apple
Crystallised ginger, chopped into small pieces to serve

Mix all ingredients except crystallised ginger in a saucepan.
Heat gently to allow infusion of flavours. Do not boil.
