Intimidated by home brewing? Get your feet wet with a very basic cider recipe. This foolproof cider uses store-bought juice, regular cane sugar and raisins. The only specialty item you'll need is a single pouch of champagne yeast.
This Strawberry Apple Cider is the perfect meeting of Summer and Fall. The strawberries and apples are a perfect pair, accented with a hint of orange. The spices create a nostalgic warmth in the aftertaste of the preserves.
