Apple Cider

-Submitted by Dahlia on 26th Sep 2008

(Sweet Cider, Soft Cider)

Apple Cider is a non alcoholic beverage made with apples and just apples. The sweetness and tartness comes naturally from the apples itself. Apple Cider is not as clear as the apple juice which is commercially extracted using big equipment.

Apple Cider


(for 1 cup)

Apples - 2 big/3 small


  1. Wash and chop the apples into small pieces with the skin on.
  2. Puree it in a blender/mixie.
  3. Using a very thin strainer and the back of a spoon, squeeze out the juice alone. You can also use a clean white cloth or cheese cloth to squeeze the juice. (If you have the juice extractor jar in your mixie, it makes making apple cider very easy as the juice is automatically separated.)

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve immediately as such or use it  to make other delicacies like
    1. Hot apple cider or mulled cider: Simmer the apple cider with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and lemon zest for 15-20 minutes.
    2. Sparkling cider: Mix the apple cider with some lemon juice and add some soda/ ginger ale while serving.

thanks... mixed crushed some wholesome organic apples with the seeds, skin etc. mixed some black old jaggery and left this concoction in a muslin cloth covered mason jar until the formation of a SCOBY... then took it down for consumption... a very strong Cider is the output... will try the same experiment on my pears this year....

       the recipe for sparkling cider works well... but the hot apple cider or mulled cider does not seem to be very attractive...

       Hi Shalaka, Thank you for your comments. Good that you liked the sparkling cider. Its totally OK that hot cider din't appeal to you. Everyones tastebuds are different.
