#1 "Banana Lemon-Lime Flavored Cider" from moninstore.com Chilled Banana Cider. While an occasional word substitution is made, the process and sequence is exactly the same so the recipe is the same and not original with the fake author/publisher Encore Books.
#2 "Bourbon Cardamom Flavored Cider" is from two-tarts.com and called Cider-Bourbon on Monday, October 22, 2012, by Dulcie Wilcox at 7:47 PM. The re-arranging of the same ingredients does not make it a new recipe and it is not original with these recipe rip-off people too lazy to get real jobs.
#3 "Maple Lemon Flavored Cider" is from shutterbean.com December 6, 2011, called Maple Bourbon Cider which they adaptd from Everyday Food Magazine. See how helpful it is to give credit where credit is due? Doesn't hurt a thing. The magazine is owned by the Martha Stewart empire and the adaption is to cut her recipe in half and decrease it from 4 servings to two. Encore just chose to steal the revised version for two servings. But it still isn't their recipe.
#4 "Pineapple Cinnamon Flavored Cider" is from cookstr.com and called Tepache which is a fermented pineapple drink from Mexico. This pilfered recipe by Encore Books is word for word for servings, cooking time, and ingredients. It's when they write the directions and change a word or two thinking that makes it LEGAL to steal this recipe off a copyright Internet site they screw everything up. Example: when the original directions say to chill and serve cold over cracked ice, these thieves that are Encore Books change it to "Freeze and serve cold!" but they don't mean it like change it into Margarita style. I assume they mean "Freeze . . . "which makes it difficult to drink if it is frozen solid. Their changes in directions to disguise their theft (and they think it works) makes their recipes weird.
#5 "Raspberry Flavored Cider" is recipe #42471 posted byratherbeswimmin' on food.com including all the exact same punctuation. But they do leave out step 3 so I guess that means Encore Books has made a new recipe" with confusing directions? Don't think so. Confusion doesn't equate to originality. It just means you don't have the capability to copy well.
#6 "Simple Apple Cider" is really Apple Pie in a Jar Drink from allrecipes.com posted by Cathy. Since they try to cover up their copying, they use incorrect syntax such as ""to cool on room temperature" and think that makes this their own "original" recipe. But it doesn't -- it just makes them sound uneducated. But the recipe rip-off copiers don't understand this is NOT ready to drink in 4 hours 20 minutes because it is HARD cider that usually needs a little more than 4 hours 20 minutes they copied off the recipe site for the mellowing of the grain alcohol. Since they just copy without comprehension, that's what you get.
#7 "Black Cherry Berry Flavored Cider" is recipe #347312 from food.com submitted by FloridNative. They think they can hide their theft by changing up the order of when you put the ingredients into the pot but it doesn't matter -- spice bag first or second is not a significant change to make it original with these thieves. Everything is the same in the recipe on food.com and not original with these recipe rip-off thieves.
#8 "Allspice Lemon Zest Cider" is really Danny's Warm and Fuzzy Apple Cider from allrecipes.com posted by KerriJ October 31, 2008. In fact, the original recipe lists "1-1/2 cups dark rum" which is not listed as an ingredient in fake book. But the DIRECTIONS tell you to "fold in the butterscotch schnapps and rum." Thre is the proof that this is copied from allrecipes.com and NEVER was original with this thieving publisher/fake author. Encore Books can't even copy correctly.
#9 Black Currant Flavored Cider" is recipe #211746 from food.com by Pikake21 from February 16, 2007, who says she got it on line looking for a way to use her black currant syrup, Ribena. from someone else, the honest way to do it.
That's why you won't find what you were promised -- directions to make your OWN cider. That takes too much time and too much knowledge that Encore Books and its stable of fake author names doesn't know or understand.
Do a search on food.com on cider drinks and you get quite a few of them that are in this book both hard and soft. Do the same on allrecipes.com and you'll find even more with the correct directions and ingredients in the correct order.
Encore Books apparently follows the advice from their teacher, Pakistani Muhammad N Sikandar, the Grand Pooh-bah of Pilfering or Grand Pooh-bah of Plagiarizing (both titles are well deserved even if apologies are due Gilbert and Sullivan) because Muhammad wrote a book telling people they could makes thousands of $$$ stealing recipes off the Internet as Encore has done in all their books with the various "fake author names " titles and fake publisher info a LONG time ago. He's the one who tells them it is legal and that simply is NOT true. Many books are taken off Amazon when the people who own the copyrights complain. It is NOT legal to do so. More importantly it is not MORAL to do so.
Don't support thieves such as Encore Books with your hard earned $$$ -- they didn't do anything to merit it.
