Buckwheat Crêpes With Caramelized Apples
By Martha Rose Shulman
About. Since 1950, the Sehedic family has been producing ciders from traditional Breton apple varieties starting with Francois. Today, Marie Laure Sehedic and her husband Christian Danielou run the family orchards and cider making. Over the last 30 years, they’ve won 50 medals at Concours General Agricole, France’s farm product competition. Recently, they’ve won the silver medal for their semi-dry cidre and gold for their Pommeau. They also were awarded the Prix D’Excellence which is given based on their aggregate performance at the awards over the last 3 years.
The Sehedic family has about 30 varieties of apples in their nearly 20ha of orchards. Their orchards are located in the Cornouaille and Fouesnant regions of Bretagne and are organically farmed. Their Extra Brut is a blend of sweet and sharp apples and undergoes an extended fermentation to achieve a dryer than typical flavor.
To expand. A recipient of the “Prix d’Excellence” (Excellence Award) by the French Ministry of Agriculture for the quality of their production, Séhédic Ciders are all “AB” certified organic. All apples used come from organic apple trees grown in the Western region of Brittany. Of the bitter-sweet cider varieties, only the traditional apples of the region are used in production (Dous Moën, Dous Coët, Marie Menard, Kermerlen, Stang Ru, Trojen Hir, Mad Koz). Cidre Séhédic has 3 apple orchards on 18 hectares. Some of the apple trees are more than 40 years old. All products at the estate are naturally made, without any additions of sugar, water or SO2.
