Cooking with Ray – Apple Cider

One of our 12 dates of Christmas (blog post coming soon!) was to make cider together. We had never made it before, so we looked over several (ok, more like 30) different recipes and variations. We ended up just winging it and I think it turned out perfectly!
This is more of a method rather than a recipe, so feel free to modify.
You will need: 1 giant jug of apple juice (we used a cheap brand, as we were adding things to make it delicious), 1 orange, 1 lime, 3 – 4 cinnamon sticks, a small handfull of whole cloves, a teaspoon of allspice, and a few pinches of ground cinnamon to taste. Put all ingredients in a large pot, stir and let it simmer for about an hour or two before drinking. orange cinnamon - 1cider - 1spicesstove
