Hot Apple Cider

I’ve made this apple cider recipe for years, and I’ve always loved the addition of maple syrup. But rather than use storebought juice, I like juicing the apples myself; it gives the cider a nice pulpy quality. (You can also use half storebought, then fill in the rest with fresh-squeezed apple juice. Or you can use storebought apple cider. Anything works fine.)
