Homemade Apple Cider

Homemade apple cider is one of the greatest things about fall. It’s extremely easy to make and the perfect way to use up all of those extra apples after going apple picking. It’s warm, full of spice, and just sweet enough.

Ingredients

large apples, quartered 1/2 

orange, halved

cinnamon sticks

cloves 1 tsp. 

whole all spice

whole nutmeg 1/2

packed brown sugar

DIRECTIONS

In a large stockpot over medium heat, add apples, oranges, spices, and brown sugar. Cover with water by at least 2”. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, 2 hours. 

Remove orange halves, then use a potato masher or wooden spoon to mash apples. Return to a simmer and let simmer uncovered for 1 hour more.

Strain through a fine mesh strainer, pressing on solids with a wooden spoon to squeeze all juices out. Discard solids. 

Serve apple cider warm. Add whipped cream with sprinkled cinnamon if you’d like. And Enjoy!!
