Fall Apple Cider

I LOVE this recipe!  I can’t wait for fall just so I can drink it.  It’s easy, smells good and is delicious.

Apple Cider


  • 2 liters (appr. 1 gallon) of natural apple juice – not from concentrate, if possible
  • 6 whole cloves
  • the peel of one orange
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 brown sugar if desired (if you can’t do sugar, don’t worry–it still tastes yummy without it!)
  • For the adults ONLY: an optional shot of brandy


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large pot on the stove.
  2. Bring to boiling and boil for 2 minutes while stirring.  Either serve immediately or leave on the lowest setting on the stove for partygoers to serve up as desired.

I enjoy serving this drink in a clear glass teapot.  Put about half the cider in the teapot with a warmer underneath.
