Vanilla citrus cider

Vanilla citrus cider

The longer you simmer the vanilla citrus cider, the more intense the flavors will be. Keep this in mind while you prepare your cider. 


Apple cider   8 cups 

1/4 cup brown sugar 

1/4 cup concentrated orange juice 

1/8 teaspoon of salt 

3 cloves of cinnamon 

1 teaspoon of whole cloves 

1/4 teaspoons of Vanilla extract 

4 slices of orange  


  • Combine the salt, orange juice concentrate, brown sugar, and apple cider in a large saucepan before adding the cloves and cinnamon sticks to a double-layered cheesecloth. 
  • Before adding the entire thing to a pan, fold over the cheesecloth's corners to enclose the seasonings and tie them tightly with a string. 
  • After bringing the mixture to a boil, lower the heat and let it simmer uncovered for an additional hour. 
  • After removing the spice bag, add the vanilla and serve with complimentary orange slices. 


At room temperature, citrus fruits only last a few days, but they last for several weeks in the refrigerator. Just be careful not to attempt to store fruit that has been peeled or zested. Citrus fruits' oil-filled peel serves as a moisture barrier to keep the interiors from drying out.
