A friend on FB gave me grief about my method of pasteurizing the apple cider pressed from the apple tree out front (bring it to a boil, done). She said to the effect, "No! You add sugar and some yeast to make it bubbly, then it's safe to drink." I'm not making hard cider, I don't drink and the kids don't need it. And quite frankly, the apples in my yard aren't very spectacular. They make a decent cider for a tree that is already here, there is no delicate flavor to ruin by boiling. If I wanted a great cider I'd get better apples. Or just buy a jug of cider.  Next batch gets some cloves and a cinnamon stick tossed in when I pasteurize, though.
