Hot Apple Cider

A few (maybe ten) years ago, Bob and I went to a little town called Oregon Illinois during their Fall Festival. I had HOT apple cider for the first time, and just couldn't get enough. Since then, I like to make hot mulled cider in the crock pot this time of year.

Hot Apple Cider

1/2 cup of brown sugar
2 quarts of cider
1 teaspoon of whole allspice
1 1/2 teaspoons whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
Orange slices

Place whole allspice and whole cloves into a tea strainer. Put all ingredients into the crock pot. Cover. Cook on LOW for 2 to 8 hours. Use a ladle to serve cider directly from the crock pot.

@PamperingBecki on twitter gives a recommendation for making Pumpkin Pie Spice coffee on her blog here along with ten random things. Don't pat her on the but if you like it. Trust me...


  1. I just had my first cup of the season yesterday at the Pumpkin Patch. Wonderful.

  2. This sounds SOOO good! Will have to give it a try the next time I pick up some cider. I think I have everything else in my cupboard.

  3. Yuuuummmmmm! It's been cooler here (not today, it's 75) so this sounds so good. And I'm all about the crock pot recipes!
