Hot Apple Cider

Hot Apple Cider (From Scratch)
When the weather turns cold, there is nothing like a hot drink to warm your bones and enjoy the magic of the season. We've gathered our favorite hot seasonal sips- to help take the chill off.


  • 10 apples, cored and quartered (sweet varieties like honey crisp, gala, fuji, etc.)

  • 4 cinnamon sticks

  • 1 orange, zested

  • 1 cloves

  • 1 nutmeg or 1 tsp ground nutmeg

  • 1 black peppercorns

  • 1 inches fresh ginger root or 1 tsp ground ginger

  • 16 water (roughly)

  • 1/2 brown sugar or maple syrup (for sugar-free, use stevia or monk fruit to taste)


  1. Over low heat, add cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and peppercorns to a large pot. Toast lightly until fragrant.
  2. Add apples, ginger, sweetener, and water (to cover the apples). Stir vigorously. Bring to a boil.
  3. Once at a boil, cover, lower to medium heat, and let simmer for 1 hour.
  4. After one hour, uncover. Using a potato masher or wooden spoon, mash the apples until broken up into small pieces. Cover and simmer for 1 hour.
  5. Remove cover and strain through a fine-mesh sieve using a spoon.
  6. Enjoy hot with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
