Cranberry Pomegranate Cider

So I am really enjoying making ciders. Wal-Fart continues to sell Musselman's Apple Cider for $1.50/gal so it is cheap and easy to make as well as simply delicious. Still, it is about time to get back to making mead.

In any event, I made a new cider a while ago with cranberry and pomegranate juice. I am hoping that it will be done by Christmas but, if not, it will be well aged for next year. I think the cranberry/pomegranate flavor will make an excellent holiday cider. The question is whether to carbonate!

Here is the recipe:


  • 5 gal Apple Cider
  • 2 cans Welch's Cranberry Concentrate
  • 48 oz Pom 100% Pomegranate Juice
  • 3 tbs pectin enzyme
  • Lavlin EC-1118
