Weber Grill Recipes Homemade Apple Cider


Weber Grill recipes: Homemade pomegranate-ginger apple cider

Serves 6-8

  • Fresh orange, 1 quartered with peel on
  • Fresh ginger, 2 tablespoons minced
  • Whole cloves, 2 tablespoons

  • Water, 16 cups

Weber Summit Grill Side Burner Apple Cider Recipe


Instructions for homemade apple cider

1. Add the apples and orange in a 6-qt pot on the Weber Summit Grill’s side burner.

2. Add the minced ginger, whole cloves and pomegranate seeds directly into the pot to strain out later.

*Pro tip: I prefer to add these ingredients inside a straining pouch to easily lift out the remains later. With a bag strainer, you don’t have to mince the ginger or thoroughly seed the pomegranate. Just slice and drop into the strainer bag!

3. Cover the apples with water, leaving about an inch or two of space at the top of the pot.

4. Heat the cider over high heat until it reaches a simmer.

5. Reduce the heat to medium-low.

6. Cover and simmer for about 2 hours, or until the apples are completely soft.

7. Using a slotted spoon, remove all of the solids (apples, oranges, spices), pressing them against the strainer to release all of their juices. Use a fine mesh strainer to strain out any smaller apple or orange pieces.

(*If you also used a strainer bag- simply remove the bag!)

8. Stir in the brown sugar.

9. Cover and let the cider simmer for 15-20 minutes.

10. Serve warm & enjoy!

*Optional- After you pour the cider into mugs or tumblers, garnish with a fresh apple slice and a cinnamon stick!

5. Reduce the heat to medium-low.

6. Cover and simmer for about 2 hours, or until the apples are completely soft.

7. Using a slotted spoon, remove all of the apples. Use a fine mesh strainer to strain out any broken apple pieces.

8. Cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.

9. Place the whole chicken in the apple mixture and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. You will want to transfer the chicken and the mixture into a larger pot.

10. Remove the chicken from the apple mixture and season the chicken to taste with your favorite poultry seasoning.

11. Roast your rotisserie chicken on the Weber Summit Grill’s unique rotisserie rack until the outer skin is glazed or slightly crisp.
