What on earth is cider?

Cider is a drink made from apple juice. When it contains alcohol, it is called hard cider or alcoholic cider. Cider or apple cider means less sweet, usually unfiltered,  apple juice.
It is made mostly in France, Spain, Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom and North America.
In the USA and Canada people drink cider around Halloween and Thanksgiving. This cider is usually unfiltered, rather thick, and it is often heated and spiced with cinnamon. This is different from the cider in Europe, which is usually not heated.
The French and Spanish cuisines have recipes that need cider. The French and Spanish often drink it instead of wine.
In Europe, many young people drink cider, which costs less than wine, and is often served in pubs and other places where they go.
In Greece, apple cider vinegar is sold at supermarkets, which is very good for salad dressings, marinades, vinaigrettes etc.

Here' s how to make cider. Be careful! It can make you drunk!
