How to Make Apple Cider

By bellalimento |

We’ve been pretty obsessed with apples lately. We’ve shown you how to make EASY CROCK POT APPLESAUCE and EASY CROCK POT APPLE BUTTER, now we’re making homemade apple cider to warm your toes on these cool fall days. While you can buy apple cider in just about any grocery, it doesn’t compare to homemade. Our version is simple to make; you don’t need a juicer to make it, just a blender or food processor and some muscle. ;) Oh, and did we mention you need just one ingredient?
NOTE: You’ll want to choose apples that are naturally sweet. If your apples are sweet enough, you won’t need to add any sweetener. If you find after you’ve made it you’d like it sweeter you can always add sugar during the heating process.

Apple Cider
What you’ll need:

10 apples — washed, cored and sliced
cinnamon sticks — optional

What to do:
1. Place your apple slices into your food processor or blender and mix until it’s pulp-like.

2. Transfer pulp to a cheesecloth. Wrap cheesecloth around pulp. Place over a bowl. Squeeze cheesecloth to extract all of the juices.

3. Transfer juice to a small sauce pan and 1 cup of water and heat until almost boiling. If mixture is too thick for your taste add a little more water.

4. Serve with a stick of cinnamon if desired.
