Apple cider (recipe)

  • 14 medium-sized assorted apples

  2. Fill with water, leaving about 2-3" of space from the top of the pot.
  3. Boil uncovered for an hour, stirring frequently to prevent burning.
  4. After an hour, cover and simmer for 2-3 more hours, crushing fruit with a masher and stirring occasionally. Taste and add more sugar or seasoning to your liking.
  5. Remove from heat, let it cool and strain all contents through a cheesecloth into a clean container.
  6. Pour into mason jars and keep refrigerated.
  7. Serve hot with cinnamon stick garnish or cold with bourbon.
