How to Make Homemade Apple Cider


  1. Place the apples in a large pot with 10 cups of water. Add all the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer for two hours, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  3. Use a potato masher to mash the apples, then stir the mixture into a strainer with a large spoon. Make sure you get all the juice!
  4. Set aside the applesauce you've now just made, and pour the cider into a glass bottle. Remove the cinnamon sticks and cloves from the applesauce and drop them into the bottle with the cider. Refrigerate.
