Apple Cider


  • 6 Granny Smith Apples ­
  • 6 Red Delicious Apples ­
  • 1 Valencia Orange ­
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Whole Nutmeg, finely chopped ­
  • 4 Whole Cinnamon Sticks, halved. ­
  • 1 Tbs Cloves


­ Wash apples and oranges and cut into quarters.­ Add to a large stockpot along with the brown sugar. ­ Lay your nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves into a cheesecloth, and tie into a satchel. ­ Fill your stockpot with enough water to cover the fruit, and add your spice satchel. ­ Bring water to a boil, let your mixture boil for at least one hour to let the fruit soften. ­ Mash your softened fruit, reduce heat, and simmer for 2 additional hours. ­ Allow the pot to cool completely, and remove your spice satchel. ­ Line a large bowl with a doubled cheesecloth, and add the contents of the stockpot. ­ Twist and squeeze the cheesecloth to get as much juice as you can. ­ Drink cool or reheat, just make sure you rummage through some leaves afterwards 🙂
