Crock-Pot Mulled Apple Cider

Crock-Pot Mulled Apple Cider

This recipe for Mulled Cider made in the slow-cooker is one of my husband’s favorites and he asks me to make it all the time when the weather is cold because it makes the house smell delicious and just hits the spot and warms you up. The ingredients are simple, apple cider (we like to use fresh pressed cider whenever we can get it) and then you spice it up with some orange zest, cinnamon, whole cloves, and fresh ginger.

You just let that simmer away for a couple hours until it is nice and hot and the spices have flavored the cider. Then ladle it into mugs and drink.

If you want to get adventurous…add some store bought caramel sauce and top with whipped cream for a Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider knock-off.

This recipe is also a great hot beverage to take to a party or holiday get-together. Just set out cups and a ladle and let your guests serve themselves straight from the crock-pot!

Instructions
  1. Pour gallon of apple cider into crock-pot (save gallon jug to store any leftover cider, just warm up in the microwave in a cup)
  2. With a vegetable peeler strip off the zest of the orange and add it to the crock-pot.
  3. Cut orange in half and squeeze juice, being careful not to add the seeds, into the crock-pot.
  4. Snap each cinnamon stick in half or into thirds and along with the cloves add to the pot.
  5. Cover and simmer on low 4-6 hours (or longer).

Recipe Notes

You can either strain the mulling spices out of your cider before serving or just try not to pick up any chunks when you ladle it into cups. Alternatively you can place all the mulling spices (zest, cinnamon, cloves and ginger) in a piece of cheesecloth and tie with a string.
