Best Juices for Kids: Hot Apple Cider

By J. Sullivan, Editor of Positive Moms Magazine

Happy Tuesday! I received a great book by Jessica Fisher and published by Harvard Common Press in Boston. It’s called, “Best 100 Juices for Kids.” It’s been sitting on my desk and with impending snow on the way tonight (ugh!), I wanted to make a warm treat for my twins. I came across this delightfully-delicious recipe and wanted to share! Let me know what you think.

Hot Apple Cider

Recipe taken from Jessica Fisher’s “Best 100 Juices for Kids” 

Ingredients:

Makes 15 to 20 ounces

  • 4 medium apples
  • 1 medium orange
  • 1 small lemon
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 6 whole cloves
  • Honey, to taste (optional)

 

Directions:

1. Core the apple. Cut the orange and lemon in half.

2. Juice the apples according to the directions on your juicing machine.

3. For a larger yield of juice and less water, juice the orange and lemon with a citrus juicer or reamer. (If you prefer, you can juice them in the juicing machine, following the manufacturer’s directions.) Peel the fruit, if desired, prior to juicing.

4. Place the two juices, cinnamon stick, and cloves in a small saucepan on the stove. Simmer for 20 minutes over low heat. Add water to taste if you or your children prefer milder juice.

5. Add honey if you prefer a sweeter juice, and whisk to combine. Serve warm.
