Growing up we always had hot apple cider during the holiday season! My mom would make a huge batch for the entire family – and she finally agreed to share the recipe with me, so I wanted to share with you all!
Here’s what you will need:
-1/2 tsp allspice
-1 tsp whole cloves
-1 to 2 cinnamon sticks
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/8 to 1/4 tsp nutmeg
-1 to 2 oranges, quartered with peel on
-1 to 2 quarts apple cider
-cheese cloth or spice bags
If you have an instant pot, I recommend using it, but a crock pot works great too!
Here’s what you will do:
-Wrap allspice, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and oranges in cheese cloth and place in crock pot. Then add apple cider.
-Cook on low for about 2 hours.
-Remove cheese cloth and all spices and oranges to avoid an over-spiced cider!
Keep on warm until ready to serve!
