Notes about the cider

  • Use Pure Apple Juice – First and foremost, use good quality apple juice.  The best you can find.  We have an Aldi here and they sell a pretty fantastic all natural organic apple juice.  It does not need to be organic, just a natural juice will do.  So, any kind of natural apple juice will do.
  • The longer it simmers, the stronger the flavour – The longer it simmers the stronger the flavour will be.  I simmered it for 40 minutes and it really had a beautiful flavour after this time.  Then the next day I reheated myself a cup and it was even stronger but not overpowering.  
  • You can make it in advance – It will keep after you have made it, so you don’t need to make it fresh.  If not serving that day, put it in a bottle or other type of airtight container and keep in the fridge.  Then you can just reheat it when you want a cup of cinnamon and apple comfort!

Happy cider making!
