It’s surprisingly easy to make your own apple cider—no apple press required. Just quarter apples, add water, sweetener (if using) and seasoning, and cook for a hour or more. Run the apples through a food mill or food strainer to remove any solids, then strain it again through cheesecloth or paint strainer bag to yield a clear liquid. Enjoy apple cider cold or hot. Once you master cider-making, use your brew to whip up apple cider donuts, a classic fall treat. Homemade apple cider keeps about a week in the fridge; freeze or water bath can it for longer storage.
