Delicious Homemade Apple Cider
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 2 litres water
  • 12 apples quartered (I use a mix of honey-crisp, fuji and granny smith)
  • 1 large orange quartered
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • ¼ cup maple syrup (or more, depending on your taste)
  1. Place the ingredients in a slow-cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
  2. Alternately you can combine everything in a large pot and cook over medium heat for 3 hours or until the apples begin to break down.
  3. Once done, strain the mixture through a mesh strainer, discard the fruit and cinnamon sticks.
  4. Strain twice.
  5. Serve warm or cold.
