SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – There are many things people enjoy about fall, from the fashion and changing of leaves to festive holidays. 

But we can’t forget one of the top favorites: apple cider. Here’s a quick recipe for a delicious homemade cider you will be craving all season long.

The key to making the cider of your liking is to include the following ingredients below. 

Ingredients

  • 5 red apples of your choice, quartered
  • 5 granny smith apples, quartered
  • 1 orange, quartered
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 1½ tablespoons whole allspice
  • ½ cup brown sugar

Directions

Add apples, orange, spices and brown sugar to a large stockpot over medium heat.

Cover the ingredients with water by at least 2 inches. Bring everything to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for two hours.

Alternatively, place the fruit, spices and sugar to a slow cooker. Cook on high heat for 3 to 4 hours.

Uncover and mash the fruit with a wooden spoon or potato masher. Cover again and simmer or slow cook on low for 1½ hours.

Use a fine-mesh strainer to strain the solids. Use a wooden spoon to squeeze the juices out.

Another option: place the fruit and spices into a cheesecloth in a bowl. After it cools, squeeze the cider back into the slow cooker.

Discard the solids.

Serve the apple cider warm. Enjoy!
