Acetic Acid, Vinegar & Jersey Lightning” is the subject of the next “Glimpses of the Past History Series” at the Montville Township Historical Society’s program on Monday, Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in the Montville Township Senior House, 356 Main Road.

Cider making begins in the fall. A mix of different apples are blended together to make a Jersey original. Allowed to ferment longer than cider, apple cider vinegar is produced. Many stories report the story of vinegar and how it was used to pickle foods in food preservation. Later, apple brandy, also called applejack, was developed. This is a big industry in New Jersey: producing nearly all applejack commercially in the US.

Come hear about cider making; isn’t this the time of year to drink cider?

The program is presented by author and professor Kevin Olsen.
