Step 1: Core Apples

Insert an apple corer into the middle of the apple and take out the stem and seeds. *Seeds or stems won’t hurt the cider, but I like to use the leftover apples to make applesauce.

Step 2: Clean Out Apple

If you are making apple cups, use a peeler to clean out the inside of the apple. Then use the pumpkin carving tool to even out the edges of the apple and add water to the cups to prevent browning. If you are skipping the cups, it is still great to use the peeler instead of cutting the apple into slices. They cook much faster as peels.

Step 3: Cook Apples

Add the apple peels to a large pot and cover slightly with water. Then bring to a hard boil. After the apples reach boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook covered for 2 hours.

Step 4: Mash Apples

Using a whisk, potato masher, or large spoon, mash the apples into a pulp. Then let the mix cool.

Step 5: Strain Cider

Using a strainer, cheese cloth, or T-shirt, strain the cider into a bowl. I like chunks of apple in my cider, so I used a strainer. If you prefer just a smoother cider, use a cheese cloth or T-shirt and drain all of the juice into a bowl. You can then add cinnamon or other spices to taste, reheat, and serve in your apple cups. Store remaining cider in glass jars. You can use the remaining apples for applesauce.
