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 naturally 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
Cook time
Total time
  • 8 cups of apple juice
  • ⅔ cup of brown sugar
  • 4 sticks of cinnamon
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 8 allspice berries - crushed
  • cheesecloth
  • string
  1. Place the apple juice into a large pot or slow cooker.
  2. Add the brown sugar and stir to combine.
  3. Add the cinnamon sticks.
  4. Put the cloves and the crushed allspice berries onto a small square of cheese cloth. Tie into a bundle and add to the juice.
  5. Bring to a boil to dissolve 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.


And be sure to share!
