Homemade Apple Cider


  • 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

Cooking Instructions

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.
