Homemade Apple Cider Recipe
Apple cider definitely falls into the “homemade is always better” category. You can buy all the store-bought cider you want and it will never come close to the quality you get by making your own. Plus, it’s super easy to do. Making homemade apple cider is the perfect family activity for the longer fall evenings. This is the only Apple cider recipe you will ever need!
What you will need:
– 10 apples, quartered
– 3/4 cup white sugar
– 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
– 1 tablespoon ground allspice
Place apples in a large stockpot and add enough water cover by at least 2 inches. Stir in sugar, cinnamon, and allspice. Bring to a boil. Boil, uncovered, for 1 hour. Cover pot, reduce heat, and simmer for 2 hours.
Strain apple mixture though a fine mesh sieve. Discard solids. Drain cider again though a cheesecloth lined sieve. Refrigerate until cold.
You can also make this recipe in the crockpot!
Here are a few other great fall recipes I think you will love:
Who doesn’t love cookies? Homemade and fresh out of the oven are always the best kind, but if you’re anything like me, you certainly don’t always have the time for all of that. Pre-made cookie dough out of the package is always an option, though it’s just not the same.
There is nothing wrong with treating yourself once in a while, right? But if you want to enjoy those delicious treats without breaking the bank, making them at home is the way to go. Plus, you can actually pick the ingredients that are going into your drinks. I don’t want to think about the chemicals that are being used to make these dreamy drinks. Here is my version (which I think tastes a tad better than Starbucks) of the infamous Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino. Hope you love it as much as I do!
