Apple Cider

We had some apples left over from the apple orchard adventure so before they go bad I decided to make some cold apple cider – I love this stuff.
It’s super easy to make – cut up your apples into quarters (just cut the seeds out – dont peel your apples!) and add water, sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Boil for one hour, then cover and simmer for 2 hours.  Strain twice and refrigerate.  It’s that easy!

More behind the cut.

I used this recipe but added more sugar to taste. I lowered the serving for 7 apples and this still made a ton..

See how much this made? Alot! Although the jar to the left is already gone… *whistles*

Add your spices in and you got some Witches Brew.

The colors start to disappear on the apples.

After about 2.5 hours…

Throw this gunk away afterwards after straining.

I strain twice, once with a wire mesh strainer then with some cheese cloth.  Strain more if you have to..

 

Enjoy! It’s going to make your kitchen smell great too. :)
