What’s Cookin’ – Hot Apple Cider

A few days ago, I shared a recipe for Glühwein (hot mulled wine).  The recipe for hot apple cider is almost identical but since it is non-alcoholic, it is good for young and old alike.

Apple cider is a common Fall and Winter beverage in the United States.  I made some hot apple cider for my sister’s business associates from Thailand.  They came to our home town to do an audit, and I fed them an All-American meal (I talked about it here).  They weren’t sure about the taste of the hot apple cider at first, but after a few sips, they loved it.

If you want a nice warm beverage for a cold Winter day, try making hot mulled wine or hot apple cider.  When you make them, your home will smell like Christmas, and drinking either one of these beverages will warm your tummy and your soul.

Hot Apple Cider ingredients.

Cut the oranges into slices about ½ inch thick.

Pour the apple cider into a large pot and turn the heat on low.  Add the remainder of the ingredients, and stir until the brown sugar is dissolved.  Cover and bring up to a low simmer.  Heat through on low heat for about 20 minutes.  Do not boil.

Serve in a mug.

Yummy.

    Are hot mulled cider and hot mulled wine the same thing? I’m confused. What’s new.

      No, hot apple cider is made with apple cider (non alcoholic) and hot mulled wine is made with red wine (alcoholic) – two different beverages but made with essentially the same ingredients.
