What can I do with a jug of cider going off

You have 4 kids and left over cider?  Why not just drink it at dinner/breakfast/lunch etc.  It will be gone in less than a day.

I've found that cider doesn't need to be 'cold' unless its been open.

They drank 2 over the weekend.

We get it fresh from the farm - no preservatives and it's "open" because they refill our jug. And yes it is going off, and I would like to do something with it. The kids won't drink it.

I've had the same thing happen to me - buy an extra jug, either for company or because the kids have been guzzling it, only to find myself with slowly turning cider because they've hit their saturation point. 

 

Unfortunately, I think vinegar is made from hard cider. The alcohol turns to vinegar, with the assist of a vinegar mother.  I don't think you can use soft cider, but I may be wrong.

 

Perhaps you can use it in baking or cooking. It might be nice to add some to a muffin batter. Do you eat meat? I have a few chicken and pork recipes that use apple juice in the marinade - I bet cider would be just as nice.

Depending on how 'off' the cider's gotten, you might be able to just cook it down to syrup (for pancakes, etc.) with a touch of brown sugar, spices.

 

Something like an apple-pork hot pot would be a good use too.
