Hot Apple Cider

Description

Gather up some apples and make a delicious batch of apple cider. While traditional cider is made with a cider press, this recipe makes hot cider in a slow cooker. Just drop the apples (and some spices) into your slow cooker, add water, and a few hours later — voilà! Fresh apples are at markets now, so grab some while they’re still fresh.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 red apples, cored and cubed
  • 2 green apples, cored and cubed
  • 1⁄2 orange, sliced
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled
  • 2 tsp whole cloves
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 8 cups water
  • 1⁄2 cup brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Place the apples, cinnamon sticks, ginger, cloves, and salt in a large slow cooker or stock pot. Pour water over the apples.
  2. Cover and cook (on high in slow cooker, over low flame in stock pot) for at least 4 hours, up to 24 hours.
  3. Remove the solids from the cider, pressing the pulp to extract as much liquid as possible.
  4. Whisk in the brown sugar until dissolved.
  5. Serve hot, or store in the refrigerator to serve later.
