Easy Apple Cider!
This is an easy apple cider mixture that I usually make around Thanksgiving and Christmas. It makes the whole house smell wonderful and it tastes fabulous! I am always trying to find the easiest road to get the results and this apple cider fits the bill.
So what do you need?....
frozen apple juice concentrate (as many as you want to make to drink! I usually make 3 cans of apple juice concentrate into apple juice)
2 T whole cloves
2-3 T cinnamon
Pour the apple juice into your crock or large pan. Place your 'pin-cushioned'** orange in the juice along with the cinnamon. Simmer for 20-30 minutes. Enjoy. I have let my cider simmer on low in my crock throughout the evening having the hot cider ready. It gives such a wonderful aroma to the house. You will love it.
*You will want to do 2 oranges if you do a really large pot of apple juice.
**Use the whole cloves as pin and simply push them into the whole orange. The orange will slowly release the clove and orange flavors into your apple/cinnamon juice.
