Slow Cooker Mulled Apple Cider
This slow cooker mulled apple cider has a 'just right' amount of sweetness from the cider itself and a bit of brown sugar. The natural spices create a lightly spiced flavor perfect to take the chill out of any winter day.
Recipe may be halved to cook in a 4 quart slow cooker.
Servings 16 1-cup servings (makes 1 gallon total)
- 1 gallon Apple Cider
- 1 large Orange , cut into ½ inch slices
- Peel from 1 medium Lemon (use a vegetable slicer or paring knife and avoid the pith)
- 2 teaspoons Whole Cloves
- 2 teaspoons Allspice Berries
- 1 inch fresh Ginger Root , thinly sliced
- 6 Cardamom Pods
- ¼ cup Brown Sugar
- 3 Cinnamon Sticks
In a large (6 quart or larger) slow cooker add all the ingredients and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours. Spices can be strained before serving by using a sieve.
Tip: to add the cloves to the rind of the orange slices, make small holes with the sharp end of a bamboo skewer first, then the cloves will insert easily and not break in the process.
