WHAT YOU NEED ONCE CIDER IS READY TO BE STRAINED:

1)Place 1/8 cup of the Onion Cider ingredients into the quart jar. For a stronger cider use up to ¼ cup.
2)Pour in the apple cider vinegar covering all of the dried ingredients. Use the long-handled spoon to poke the herbs and spices down and continue filling with vinegar
3)Cover the jar with a piece of parchment if using a metal lid to prevent corrosion. Screw lid on tight and shake well.
4)Shake daily and check after 2 weeks. Continue to infuse for 2-3 more weeks if you prefer a strainer over a spicier cider. The longer you let it infuse, the hotter it will be.
5)Once cider is ready and hot enough, carefully strain off all liquid into a fine mesh strainer over the glass bowl. You can also use a cheese cloth to squeeze out more liquid.
6)If you wish, you can now add honey to your cider by starting with ¼ cup and adding more to taste. Adding honey is optional.
7)Pour finished cider into a clean 16 fl oz jar and label.
8)Keep cider in a dark cabinet and use within one year from making it.
