Nothing says winter quite like apple cider—and this version takes it to the next level with flavor. Using a slow cooker makes preparing this hot beverage easier than ever, and as the cider mulls, your house will smell fantastic!



  • 1 gallon apple cider
  • 4 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, sliced, optional
  • Peel of 1 organic orange, optional
  • maple syrup, optional


  1. Combine in a slow cooker the cider, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and orange peel.
  2. Heat on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours, or until the spices infuse the cider. The longer the cider cooks, the stronger the spice flavor will be.
  3. Discard the cinnamon sticks, cloves, ginger, and orange peel before serving.
  4. Store extra cider in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.


  • To make it easier to remove the spices and peel, place them in a few layers of cheesecloth and tie with string to make a nice little bundle. For a sweeter sip, add honey or maple syrup.
