Homemade Apple Cider
Apple Season is here which means Homemade Apple Cider! Yes yes please. Sweet and tart apples are cooked together with oranges and warm spices.
Servings 8 servings
- 5 pounds apples I used 2.5 pounds of fuji's and 2.5 pounds of granny smith
- 1 navel orange cut in half
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 teaspoon whole cloves
- 8 cups cold water
Wash apples, cut into quarters and core. Add apple quarters to a large pot. Add orange halves, brown sugar, cinamon sticks, cloves and water.
Cover pot and bring to boil, then reduce to simmer and cook covered for 1 hour.
Remove lid, discard orange halves, mash apples, then cover and cook on low another 45 minutes.
Strain apples from cider by pouring through a fine-mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth.
Serve warm with whipped cream and caramel sauce or store in containers and refrigerate and enjoy cold.
