I made my cider in an aluminum pot, is it safe?


For the short amount of time your cider was in the pot it would not be a concern. The big concern is for acid foods being in the pot for extended periods of time like fermenting pickles. It could pit the pot. Your cider will be safe to drink. You are much more at risk drinking unpasteurized cider than heating in your canner.
