- 10 large apples, quartered
- 1/2 orange, halved
- 4 cinnamon sticks
- 1 teaspoon cloves
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- 1 whole nutmeg
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
Step 1: 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.
Step 2: 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.
Step 3: Strain through a fine mesh strainer, pressing on solids with a wooden spoon to squeeze all the juices out. Discard solids.
Step 4: Serve apple cider warm.
