Old Fashioned Apple Cider

A few years ago, my husband started raving about and craving the Apple Cider his grandma used to make. So naturally, he called up his mom and scribbled down the recipe on a scrap of paper. Every year since, we make Apple Cider out of crab apple harvest! Our kids love drinking it cold, but my favourite is on a cold winters evening, especially around Christmas, to crack open a jar and warm with mulling spices. Mmmm... soooo good!

Ingredients:
5 quarts boiling water
4 quarts apples
6 tsps cream of tarter
Sugar

Instructions:
- Sprinkle tarter over washed & quartered apples.
- Pour boiling water over apples, let stand 24 hours.
- Strain through cheese cloth.
- Bring juice just to boil for 10 minutes.
- Add sugar to taste.
- Store in juice/mason jars or freeze in containers.

  1. So I am terrible at reading directions and added water cold. Then I read to have it boiling. So then I boiled it and set it aside for 24 hours. Do you think it will still work? That was my last bit of apples.
