Tip #1

Apple juice is usually sweetened with sugar in some form whereas, apple cider is pure apple juice without any additional sweetening. Some cider is sold pasteurized which has a longer shelf life. Because cider can be more perishable than apple juice, check the label for storage recommendations.
