Homemade Apple Cider

This it the perfect time of year to spend time together inside, as the weather gets colder and colder outside. While we love to get out and enjoy some crisp fall air, it's always nice to return to the warmth of the indoors with a hot cup of your favorite seasonal beverage. Apple cider is a classic drink that you can find at any grocery store all throughout fall and winter, but did you know that it is super easy to make yourself?

Especially up here in the PNW, there are a TON of apple trees. Many times however, these apples are looking a little bruised and wilted around this time of year but it would be a shame for them to go to waste. Homemade apple cider is the perfect use for these apples because you are just going to cook them down anyway! Follow the instructions below to make a toasty batch of this holiday favorite.


9 apples, quartered

1 1/2 tablespoon of ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon of ground allspice

3/4 cup white sugar


Combine all your ingredients in a large pot and cover with at least 2 inches of water. Let the pot boil for 1 hour. Reduce heat, cover the pot, and allow to simmer for 2 more hours. Pour the juice through a strainer to separate from solid ingredients. Allow to cool and serve!
