Medicinal Cider – Recipe
The medicinal cider is an extraordinary elixir, it’s extremely beneficial for your health and it’s very simple to prepare as you will see below.
– 3 kg of rise fruits

Take a very large glass jar (around 15 kilos) and put the fruits that you have previously mashed in the mincing machine, the honey, the peeled and chopped lemons and the beer yeast. Let this entire mixture soak for about 3 weeks at room temperature.
Don’t fill the jar, as throughout fermentation the mixture will bulk and can get out of the jar. So, leave about 20% of the jar’s volume empty so as to avoid any accidents.
Once the fermentation has stopped, you can put the cider in dark glass bottles and let it decant for about 5 days. The bottles have to be tightly closed and you must keep them in a cold place away from light and heat. Once this period has passed, you must pour only the clear liquid in similar dark glass bottles and keep them in the same conditions.
You can drink almost 2 glasses of cider per day. Be careful, because cider is only recommended for adults, so keep it away from the reach of children and don’t let them drink it. Depending on what fruits you’ve used, you can also add different flavors such as cinnamon, cloves, rum, rosemary, orange etc.
