Why not make your own cider at home since you can’t buy one and who knows, maybe cider will be the next big thing?
All you need is good quality fruit to make a good base.
4 litres water
5 good quality apples
3 cups of sugar
1 packet instant yeast
- Slice each apple into eight pieces.
- Combine all the ingredients and cook for 15 minutes.
- Remove from stove and allow to cool to at least 40 degrees.
- Add the yeast, stir and cover with plastic wrap for five days in a cool place.
- Strain the mixture and bottle in glass containers, place in the fridge for two to three days.
- You can use red or green apples, depending on your taste.
- Flavor with cinnamon or cloves for a twist on the classic version.
2 tablespoons of instant coffee
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of boiling water
1 cup of milk (soy, almond, and oat milk are also great alternatives to regular milk)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla (optional)
Pinch of cinnamon/cocoa (optional)
Add the coffee, sugar, and boiling water into a bowl (you can double or triple this recipe if you have more people, or if you’re feeling brave). Use a hand/stand mixer and whip on high speed.
Whip the mixture for about two minutes, making sure to scrape the excess off the sides and reincorporate it into the mixture. Then whip again for another three minutes.
Your mixture should be light in color and double the volume.
Add the vanilla to your milk of choice (hot or cold) and stir.
Remember, the whipped coffee mixture will be strong on its own, but the flavor becomes much milder once you stir it into your milk or add it to your desserts.
