Apple cider (also called sweet cider or soft cider) is the name used in the United States and parts of Canada for an unfiltered, unsweetened, non-alcoholic beverage made from apples. It may be opaque due to fine apple particles in suspension and may be tangier than conventional filtered apple juice, depending on the apples used.
"Apple juice and apple cider are both fruit beverages made from apples, but there is a difference between the two. Fresh cider is raw apple juice that has not undergone a filtration process to remove coarse particles of pulp or sediment. Apple juice is juice that has been filtered to remove solids and pasteurized so that it will stay fresh longer. Vacuum sealing and additional filtering extend the shelf life of the juice.
Modern methods allow a formerly hand-made beverage to be commercially produced. About 2 kilograms (4.4 lb) of apples is needed to make a 1 litre of cider. Apples are washed, cut, and ground into a mash that has the consistency of applesauce. Layers of this mash are wrapped in cloth and placed upon wooden or plastic racks. A hydraulic press then squeezes the layers together, and the juice flows into refrigerated tanks. The juice is bottled and sold as apple cider.
Apple juice can be substituted with apple cider if it is not available in the market easily.
