Apple cider, not to be confused with hard cider or 'apple juice', is a nonalcoholic beverage made from apples.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

A comparison of apple cider (left) and apple juice (right)

Apple cider is the fresh juice pressed from apples. Unlike "apple juice", apple cider is cloudy and contains sediment, and it is rarely pasteurized or sweetened.[1][2]

The flavor profile of a cider will largely depend on the variety of apple (single or a mixture) used to make it.[1]

Selection and storage[edit | edit source]

Apple cider usually needs to be refrigerated, where it will keep for around a week.[1]

Use[edit | edit source]

As a seasonal product, apple cider is typically consumed as a fall beverage, often hot and mulled with spices.[1] It is also often used in both savory and sweet dishes to lend an apple flavor in addition to sugar and moisture.
