How To Make Homemade Apple Cider
This winter, a warm drink will surely bring a soothing sensation. Prepare this homemade apple cider with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and oranges for zest.
Combine your ingredients in a stockpot. Add the apples, oranges, cinnamon, cloves, and seasonings to a large stockpot. Cover with water, leaving about an inch or two of space at the top of the stockpot.
Heat the cider over high heat until it reaches a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for about 2 hours, or until the apples are completely soft.
Mash the apples and oranges. Using a potato masher or a wooden spoon, mash all of the apples and oranges against the side of the stockpot to release more of their flavors. Then cover and simmer for 1 more hour.
Using a fine-mesh strainer or a cheesecloth, strain out all of the solids, pressing them against the strainer to release all of their juices. Discard the solids.
Sweeten. Stir in your desired amount of sweetener, to taste.
