What is it?

Hard apple cider is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented apple cider. It ranges widely in flavor, sweetness, and alcohol content—depending on the type of apples, the fermentation process, and other ingredients and flavorings added.

Hard cider is often consumed on its own, like beer. But in cooking, it’s commonly added to sauces and braising liquids.
