Spiced Apple Cider

spiced apple cider

I’m pretty obsessed with things traditionally christmassy: carols, food, sweaters, decorations – you name it. As lovely and as cosy as all all that stuff is, it doesn’t really make sense in New Zealand, where it’s summer right now.

While looking around the internet one day, I found a recipe for some spiced apple cider (American soft cider – non alcoholic), which can be served either hot or cold; so is perfect for you guys living in a warmer climate who want to a Christmas drink, but don’t want to boil because it’s so damn hot. !

Instructions
  1. Core the apples and place in a large pot, add the sugar and spices (you could use a stick of cinnamon if you wanted, he original recipe used a stick, but I can't find them anywhere at the moment).
  2. Cover the apples with cold water and bring to the boil. Boil for around 30 minutes to an hour on medium-high.
  3. Reduce the heat and leave to simmer for about two hours.
  4. strain apples through a sieve and discard the solids.
  5. Strain a second time through a sieve lined with cheesecloth - this gets rid of any pulp left behind, I was surprised at how much there was!
  6. Allow cool, and enjoy!
