Serves: 4 cups
A variety of apples simmered in cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and sugar. This spiced fresh apple cider is the perfect beverage for fall.
  • 4 medium sized apples, quartered
  • 5 cups water
  • ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground clover
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  1. Add all the ingredients into a medium to large pot over medium to high heat.
  2. Allow the cider to simmer for about 45-50 minutes until the apples become soft and the cider appears thick.
  3. Remove the cider from heat and allow it to cool for 15-20 minutes, or until the cider is cool to touch.
  4. Pour a third of the cider and pulp into a fine mesh strainer. Squeeze as much of the cider out as possible before discarding the pulp. Continue until all the cider and pulp have been strained.
  5. Serve the cider warm or cold.
