Hot Homemade Apple Cider

Many apple cider recipes have sugar added to them and are overly sweet, for my taste. This Hot Apple Cider recipe however goes in the other direction, I add water to it to dilute the natural sweetness of the apple juice. This also stretches the amount, making the recipe more economical.

I made this the other day during the super chilly weather and with it’s warming spices (cinnamon and cloves) it hit the spot.

Instructions

  1. 1In large pot combine apple juice, water, cinnamon sticks, cloves, orange and bring to a boil
  2. 2Reduce and simmer for 15 minutes or longer
  3. 3Serve
