Making apple cider is definitely a treat during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Here is a simple 5 ingredient recipe that is very delicious!!!
(2) bottles of 64oz apple juice
1/4 cup maple syrup
the peel from (1) whole orange
6 cinnamon sticks
2 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
Combine all ingredients in a pot over the stove. Heat and let the mixture come to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let it simmer for 1 1/2 hours. The longer the mixture simmers, the stronger the flavor of the cider.
You could also put these ingredients in the slow cooker and let them cook on low for 4-6 hours. It’s pretty hard to mess this recipe up. I hope your family enjoys this cider as much as my family does!
