Apple Cider also known as sweet cider or soft cider is the name used in the United States and parts of Canada for an unsweetened, unfiltered, non-alcoholic beverage made from apples. Apple cider is simple and economical to produce. It may be thick due fine apple particles in suspension and may be tangier than usual filtered apple juice, based on the apples used.
This untreated cider is a seasonally produced drink of limited shelf-life that is usually available only in fall, though it is at times frozen for use all through the year. It is usually served on the Hallowmen, Thanksgiving, Christmas and different New Year’s holidays, sometimes mulled and heated. It is the official state beverage of New Hampshire.
