The recipe calls for a stainless steel or enameled pot. I have neither. Is there an alternative? Will using a different kind of pot be dangerous?
Hi, Dixie. Using aluminum or copper would result in a metallic taste. We highly recommend using either stainless steel or an enameled pot. Perhaps you could borrow one from a friend or neighbor when you make this recipe.
Your recipe looks good and I am going to make some over our outdoor fire pot this winter. I see star anise in the picture, but none in the recipe. Were they left out, or was it just a stock picture you used? Thank you for all of your good recipes and garden suggestions.
We do not include star anise in our recipe, but feel free to add it (and other spices) to your cider! Changing the flavor profile is one good way to make sure you never get tired of the “same” recipe!
I had the same question about them photo containing star anise. I was so glad to see that it was already answered. I love star anise and can't wait to add it this year!
