Another post for the simple, healthy, and hearty foods file. Boiled cider is just dead simple. It’s exactly what it sounds like, freshly pressed cider that’s been boiled down by about 2/3’s so that it becomes a sweet and apple-y flavored syrup. Boiled cider is a wonderful sweetener for fall and winter cooking. I usually add a few mulling spices and a little glub of honey to mine to up the flavor a bit.
