Apple Cider Mix

I am looking for a recipe for instant apple cider mix to use in heated water. My husband loves hot apple cider and he does not like the store bought apple cider warmed up in a cup. He loves the Alpine apple cider mix but it is $2 per box of 8 envelopes at Walmart and I was hoping for a recipe to make the mix myself. Thank you.

    Finding dry apple flavored powder will be the main problem. I have seen it in the packets you add to bottled water. Maybe you coudl experiemnt using those, Tang, and spices.

    I also love the Alpine cider in the packets. You are looking for something that I have been trying to find for the last 10 years. I make most of my own mixes and have many sources to order unusual ingredients from. But, I have NEVER seen one with “powdered apple”. I can find tomato powder, cherry powder but never the apple. I’ll take my laptop with me to the laundromat and research while the machines are doing their magic. If I find something I will post it. TRISH

    Amazon has apple powder – real and “apple flavored”. Please post any recipe you come up with! I too am trying to replace the store bought stuff.

    • TRISH says

      THANK YOU Jeb for the amazon information. Now I’m on a mission to figure out the recipe. Stay tuned but don’t hold your breath! I’m really busy these days so it might take me a while to do the research & taste testing. Again, thx!

    I slice apples really thin, dehydrate them until crispy, and then pulverize them in my Magic Bullet. I mix in cinnamon, sugar, and allspice. I sift it to make it really fine. Just add hot water, stir, and drink.

  6. Cathy says

    I should add that I also run the sugar and spices through the Bullet too and sift them with the apples so that the sugar is powdered, not granulated. I end up with about 1-2 tsp of stuff that doesn’t sift, and I toss it so that when rehydrated it doesn’t turn into apple chunks.
