This one is a very rare treat for our family since apple cider is SO loaded with sugar, but it’s great to have for those special occasions.
Spiced Cider Recipe
Thank you Barb for another great fall recipe!
- ½ gallon raw organic apple cider
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 3 cardamom pods
- 5 cloves
- A good shake of ground cinnamon
I just add all of this to the ½ gal and stick it back in the fridge. It takes about 2-3 days before it’s good and flavored (that extra ground cinnamon is to tide you over if you can’t wait that long). When we’re ready to drink it, I just pour it through a tea strainer over a glass and put back whatever spices wind up in the strainer.
This could be served warm or even just room temp. I hesitate to heat it too much because the raw cider is so good for you, it seems a shame to cook it.
Did you make a real food recipe?
