Spiced Apple Cider

Spiced Apple Cider

Looking for something a bit different to enjoy this holiday season I started playing with my spices looking to create a nice aromatic apple cider.

Using the flavors of fall is a favorite. I can never get enough of the warm spicy hints of cinnamon and cloves. A natually great compliment to the apple. A few crushed allspice berries was added to round out the flavor.

You can makes this in a large pot on the stove or in a slow cooker.

 

Spiced Apple Cider

8 cups of apple juice

2/3 cup of brown sugar

4 sticks of cinnamon

8 whole cloves

8 allpice berries – crushed

cheesecloth

string

Place the apple juice into a large pot or slow cooker.

Add the brown sugar and stir to combine.

Add the cinnmon sticks.  Put the cloves and the crushed allspice berries onto a small square of cheese cloth. Tie into a bundle and add to the juice.

Bring to a boil to disolve the sugar then turn to low to simmer.

This usually takes about 2 1/2 hours on high in the slow cooker or 20 minutes plus simmering when making it on the stove.

Enjoy!
