  • Large Stockpot


  • 10 to 12 Medium Apples Honeycrisp, Fuji, Gala, Braeburn…etc.
  • 2 Large Oranges
  • 2 Medium Persimmons
  • 5 Sticks Cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp Whole Cloves
  • 1in Knob Peeled Ginger
  • 1 Whole Nutmeg
  • 1 Whole Star Anise
  • 1 Whole Allspice
  • 1/2 Cup Pure Maple Syrup Can sub dark brown sugar
  • Water


  • Halve and quarter the apples, oranges, and persimmons.
  • Place the fruit along with the spices into a large stockpot.
  • Add enough water until all of the fruit is covered leaving about 2 inches of room from the top of the pot.
  • Over high heat, bring the water to a rapid simmer. Lower the heat to medium, cover and continue to simmer for 2 hours.
  • After 2 hours, uncover the pot and use a potato masher or wooden spoon to muddle the fruit.
  • Continue to simmer in an uncovered pot for an additional hour.
  • After simmering for an hour, use a cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer to strain the pulp and spices from the cider. Make sure to press or squeeze all of the liquid from the pulp.
  • Place strained cider back into pot and keep warm over low heat.
  • Add in maple syrup 1 Tbsp at a time until desired level of sweetness is reached.


For a less punchy acidic cider, remove the peel from the oranges before simmering. 
Let cider cool and store leftover in an air tight container in the refrigerator. Cider will keep for 5 days. 
Feel free to play with the fruit and spices added. Try adding pomegranate seeds or cranberries for additional festive flavors. For a bolder spice, add in 5 whole black peppercorns. 
Leftover cider can be used in baked goods (pancakes, donuts, bread, cakes) or in overnight oats!
