*Apple variety can vary here based on your personal sweetness preferences and availability. I had Honeycrisp apples to use up, which aren't usually ideal for braising, but they turned out out ok. Fuji would be fantastic here, as would a slightly tarter Rome or Jonagold.
**For best results, use a crisp cider that is on the drier side (as opposed to sweet). I used a 5% ABV cider made from 100% apple juice with no hops.
