I used to work at a small apple orchard and the cider was made with a very old apple press. You just put the whole apples in, smash them (mechanically) and catch all the juices. No other additives. Apple juice is just watered down and filtered cider.

So given that, maybe cider could be made from apple juice by just reducing it?

I would think you could sub apple juice for cider in any recipe. While I find juice is sweeter than cider, if the recipe calls for honey or sugar, I would leave it out to start and add any in later to get the taste you want.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
