What is French Brittany "Chouchen"?
Chouchenis an alcoholic drink which is the Breton version of the mead of the Middle Ages, made from honey fermented in water. However, in the Brittany region of France, the juice of freshly-pressed apples is used. In general, a third of the volume should be honey for the chouchen to attain the correct strength.
The chouchen is usually allowed to mature for at least a year, so it can develop all its taste and scents of honey and apple. Traditionally it is served well-chilled, though without ice, as an apéritif or digestif. It can also be used in cookery, with foie gras, melon or seafood, which is widely enjoyed in Brittany.
