Many apple cider recipes have sugar added to them and are overly sweet, for my taste. This Hot Apple Cider recipe however goes in the other direction, I add water to it to dilute the natural sweetness of the apple juice. This also stretches the amount, making the recipe more economical.
I made this the other day during the super chilly weather and with it’s warming spices (cinnamon and cloves) it hit the spot.
1 quart apple juice
2 cups water
5 cinnamon sticks
1 orange, sliced (leave skin on)
In large pot combine apple juice, water, cinnamon sticks, cloves, orange and bring to a boil
Reduce and simmer for 15 minutes or longer
