It's made by pressing apples and collecting the juice that comes out. One
can buy a cider press, but they aren't cheap. You can only get it in the
fall because that's when apple season is. Cider can be frozen. We did
this a couple of years ago. Toward the end of the season, we put a gallon
(less about 1/2 cup to allow for expansion) in the freezer and saved it
about a month. Tasted just as good.
