I poured all of the apple juice into the saucepan and turned the heat on medium to start off the process. Next I sliced the orange and ginger root into thin slices. Don’t worry about the peels or skins attached, it will eventually be strained.

Add the Orange, ginger, cinnamon sticks, ground cinnamon, allspice, cloves and brown sugar to the apple juice.

Step 3: Simmering and Straining

Whisk everything briefly and than allow all of the ingredients to simmer on the stovetop for about twenty minutes.

Once the Cider has simmered for about twenty minutes, take the pan and carefully strain the cider through a strainer that is placed over a plastic pitcher.

Discard the strained ingredients and store the Cider in your refrigerator.
