Kitchen Dictionary: cider

The exact definition of "cider" varies from one geographical region to another. In Europe and many other parts of the world, cider is an alcholic drink made from fermented pressed apple juice, whereas in America cider often simply refers to unfermented pressed apple juice, and the alcoholic version is generally called "hard cider" or "draft cider." It is important to clarify the use of the term in recipes, since the two may not be interchangeable in a particular recipe. If a recipe specifies "dry cider," for instance, the chances are it is dry (i.e. not sweet) alcoholic cider, and substituting apple juice will result in the dish being much sweeter, and with less "bite" than intended.
