Growing up in the midwest, apple cider was a fall favorite. It was the ultimate treat after raking leaves. Whether you're surrounded by cornfields or palm trees, you can't go wrong with apple cider. It's simple and delicious. Once you combine cannabis, it becomes that much sweeter. Follow this recipe to make a bold and spicy baked apple cider.
🍃 Prep time: 15 minutes, with approximately 2 hours of cook time.
🍴 Serves: 16 servings
INGREDIENTS FOR Baked apple cider:
- 11 apples quartered
- 1 1/4 tbs. of ground cinnamon
- 1 tbs. of all spice
- 1/4 tsp. of vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1-2 tsp. (10ml) of cannabis tincture per serving
Drop the quartered apples into a large stockpot. (Keep in mind you can also do this in a crockpot.) Add enough water to the pot so that it sits slight above the apples. Aim for about 2-3 inches of water above the apples, give or take.
Next, add the brown sugar and vanilla extract.
Combine the cinnamon and all spice and place them in a cheese cloth. Place the cheesecloth in the stockpot.
Boil the mixture on high heat for 1 hour. Do not cover the mixture. Check it frequently to avoid burning.
Next, cover the pot and turn down the heat. Let the mixture simmer for 2 hours.
Remove the cheesecloth with the spices. Take a potatoe masher and begin mashing up the apples.
Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve. Remove any solid pieces. Drain the cider one more time.
Refrigerate the mixture until it is cold.
When ready to serve, add 1-2 tsp. of cannabis tincture per drink. Serve chilled or warmed.
