OMG! The house smelled so good when making this cider! The kids commented it smelled like Christmas! I had enough apples from our apple tree to do eight batches of this recipe in my largest stock pot. I did not end up using as much sugar as the recipe calls for...the amount of sugar you would need would greatly depend on the tartness or sweetness of your apples. I ended up using approximately 1/3 c per batch for my apples. I also used a few more spices to add more of an apple pie flavor to the cider. I used cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and cardamom. I hope to can enough of the cider to enjoy throughout the fall and winter. The leftover pulp made a flavorful applesauce and also apple butter. Yum!
