Warm up on a cold day with a delicious cup of Hot Spiced Apple Cider! This easy recipe simmers in your slow cooker and great to enjoy all season long!
One of the many things I love about this time of year is Hot Spiced Apple Cider. After spending hours outside on a chilly day playing with the kids, racking leaves or picking up sticks nothing beats coming indoors to a hot cup of cider. If you were to ask my son he’d tell you this is his favorite! He’s so cute and he loves this Hot Spiced Apple Cider.
What I love about this recipe is it’s super easy thanks to a slow cooker. Just add everything to your slow cooker crank the heat up to high for about an hour then reduce the heat to low or warm and let it simmer for a few hours longer. The longer it simmers the better! This no fuss Hot Spiced Apple Cider is also perfect for any of your holiday gatherings too. Just set your slow cooker on your kitchen island or buffet table with a ladle and some cinnamon sticks for garnish and let your guests enjoy! It’s effortless and everyone loves it!
If you don’t have a slow cooker, no worries! You can use a pot on the stove. It’s actually how I first created this recipe was using just a pot. Then I found myself making it all the time so I changed the recipe so I could just keep it in the slow cooker without worrying about it. If you use a pot on the stove just follow the directions except just bring it to a simmer and let it simmer for a few hours. Again the longer it simmers the better!
Don’t you wish you had a warm cup of this now?
What’s great about this recipe is you can easily double it if you’re making it for a crowd. And if you have any leftover just pour it into a container or mason jar along with the cloves, fruit and cinnamon sticks and pop it in the refrigerator. When you’re craving another glass just heat it up!
I like to stick the cloves in the sliced apples so I don’t have a lot of cloves floating around. Of course a few may fall out but by sticking the cloves in the fruit prevents them too many from floating around and makes it look so pretty!
