Instant Pot Apple Cider
This is always good on a cold night. Making it in the Instant Pot is amazing.
- 6 medium size apples, core removed, quartered
- 2 1/2 cups (or more) filtered water
- Zest and juice of 1 orange, strained
- 1/4 cup real maple syrup
- 1 inch chunk fresh ginger, sliced
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 7 whole cloves
- Add apple pieces and 2 1/2 cups water to a high powered blender. Blend until fully combined and liquified. Pour apple juice through a fine mesh strainer into a large mixing bowl or pitcher. Repeat straining 3 times to remove all of the pulp.
- Pour strained apple juice into stainless steel Instant Pot. Add orange juice to the Instant Pot. If the liquid volume does not reach the 5 cup mark on the Instant Pot, add more water until it hits the 5 cup mark. Add orange zest, maple syrup, sliced ginger, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Press “Saute” and bring to a boil. When the apple cider starts to boil, turn the Instant Pot off by pressing “Keep Warm/Cancel”. Put the Instant Pot lid on making sure the seal valve is closed. Press “Manual” then “-” until you reach 10 minutes. The Instant Pot will say “On” and will begin to count down to 10 once the pressure builds. When the Instant Pot beeps, it’s done. Turn the Instant Pot off by pressing “Keep Warm/Cancel”. Let it naturally pressure release for about 15 minutes until the silver dial next to the steam value drops. With an oven mitt open the steam value just in case any leftover steam needs to escape. Using an oven mitt, open the lid and VERY CAREFULLY ladle or pour the super hot spiced apple cider through a fine mesh strainer. Enjoy immediately in your favorite mug.

Apple Walnut Cake
When I was a kid I had a number of penpals. But, there was one very special girl. Her name was Bev and she lived in Michigan.
We shared a birthday which was really special. We wrote to each other until both of us were married and had kids. I wish I could find her again.
Her husband was a minister. They would make this cake for their church get-togethers. It’s really wonderful!
