Best Apple Cider Ever

Right now I have a batch of Apple Cider brewing on my stove top. It smells amazing.
Today the husband and I are stranded in our little house. We were supposed to be driving to Denver for Thanksgiving, but we were hit by an intense blizzard last night. This morning, we woke to a world of stillness, cold (8 degrees), and white. We are snowed-in and I am hoping to make the most of it (movies and apple cider sound pretty good, huh?).

This is my third batch of Cider in the last two months. It's amazing. When I used to work at ACSI headquarters, Teresa Bolton would have cider brewing all day on special days for the taking. And I loved it. I loved it so much that my first Autumn away from ACSI, I emailed her and asked for her recipe. I can't enjoy an Autumn season without it.

I thought it would be a great thing to share with you, just in time for your holiday.

Teresa's Apple Cider
  • One gallon of 100% Apple Cider
  • One orange cut into fours
  • Ten cloves on the peel of each fourth of the orange
  • Four cinnamon sticks

Brew for a minimum of two hours, covered. 
Leftover cider put back into original cider container and refrigerate.
