I would like to make apple cider from scratch. Some of the recipes I have found call for boiling the apples first in some water, and then to place the cooked apples in a sieve with or without cheesecloth. Some recipes call for pureeing the apples, and then putting that into cheesecloth and squeezing the juices out. Which method is better? I will be serving the apple cider hot with mulled spices.
