Homemade Spiced Apple Cider – No added sugar or apple juice involved

       Homemade apple cider is actually really very simple to make. Preparation time is about 5 minutes. Lately I have seen people raving about homemade apple cider made in a slow cooker. Well, I don’t have a slow cooker and I decided to give it a try on my stove top. I really love this boil method. Not only because your house will smell amazing for hours, but there are more nutrients go into the water making it naturally sweet – with no added sugar or store bought apple juice.

How To Make Spiced Apple Cider:

1. Wash your apples and orange. Slice your apples. I used our awesome apple slicer which cored and sliced them easily. No need to peel apples. Place apples in a large soup pot. Slice your orange and add it to the pot – no need to peel the skin.

2. Add spices: 4 cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, 1 Tbsp whole cloves.
3. Optional – Drizzle the top with honey, then pour in 11 cups water to cover your fruit.

4. Bring the pot to a boil over high heat (now lean over and savor this amazing aroma), then reduce heat to medium and lightly boil uncovered for 1 hour. Reduce heat to low, and simmer another hour. The juice should begin to turn amber in color when it’s finished.  The flavor should be sweet and spicy. If it isn’t sweet enough for you – you can add more honey

5. Strain your cider through a fine mesh colander or through a fine mesh nut milk food strainer bag. I found that strainer bag outperformed a regular strainer or cheese cloth, making it very easy to squeeze as much juice as possible and discard the fruit pulp and spices.

Serve hot. This apple cider refrigerates well and is really easy to heat up on the stove top or in the microwave. Give a cold version a try too during the hot summer month for a boosted detox apple cider drink.
