It looks like molasses: rich, thick, and syrupy, but Boiled Cider tastes like apples: a little tart, a little sweet, decidedly autumnal. You can make boiled cider yourself by cooking apple cider down very slowly, straining it, and pouring into sterilized jars. Or, if you don't have 8 hours to spare, you can try this version from Woods Cider Mill, bottled in small batches in Vermont. Then use it in recipes below or like this:
1. Instead of maple syrup, over pancakes or waffles.
2. As au jus, for this sweet and savory oven-roasted pork tenderloin.
3. To flavor frostings like butter cream or cream cheese, then slather on apple cupcakes.
4. For breakfast, drizzled over Greek yogurt and roughly chopped almonds, or for dessert, to jazz vanilla ice cream.
5. At cocktail time, in this beautifully balanced rye and cider drink.
