Homemade Apple Cider (with Just 2 Ingredients)

Every year around the first of October I get a raging craving for some hot apple cider.  Maybe it has something to do with the crisp fall air and memories of all the samples of apple cider I drank while vacationing in Vermont a few years ago. This weekend I decided to try to recreate the magic with a homemade apple cider recipe that is simple, easy, and super delicious.  AND, it only uses two ingredients!

Before I tell you about the cider, I also cannot stop thinking about all the cider donuts.  Those donuts were THE BEST thing I have ever flopped a lip on.  Since I couldn’t get them out of my mind, I bought a pumpkin donut from Dunkin, which is the closest thing to a Cold Hollow Cider Mill donut I’ve ever found.

Now, let’s get along to the cider!

I poured the apple juice in a mug and microwaved it for one minute (or you could heat it on your stovetop if you have an aversion to microwaves).  Then I stirred in just ONE DROP of Thieves oil.  And it came to pass that I invented the fastest, easiest homemade recipe for hot apple cider on the planet.
