Crockpot Apple Cider

With fall fastly approaching, trust me since we move in the fall this countdown is on my calendar!! And I truly cannot wait! So I figured why not make something fall-ish to remind me of what is coming out way (not that I need reminding lol). When it comes to the sugar and how much you add you really want to measure it for yourself what you like. I tend to enjoy the apples providing most if not all the sugar in my apple cider but I do add a little. Some of the ingredients here are not pictured, I left the photos up to my daughter Kailee and she neglected to let me know that she did not photo the spices lol. Well, be sure you share your photos once you make this! Keep in mind you can use organic raw honey, organic coconut sugar, organic maple syrup, organic brown sugar or organic regular sugar like I did.

You Will Need:

10 Organic Apples, I used Honeycrisp and Granny Smith
3 Organic Cinnamon Stick
1 tsp Organic Ground Clove
1/2 tsp Organic All-Spice
1/2 tsp Organic Nutmeg
1/3 Cup Organic Sugar
10-12 Cups Water
Sliced Organic Oranges (Optional)

Wash, cut and corn apples, place in crockpot then add spices and sugar

Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours 

An hour before the cider completes, remove the apples and oranges if you add them be sure to push all the juice out of them before discarding. Place pot back on for the last hour, afterwards be sure to strain the apple cider through a fine steeve (I covered my strainer in cheesecloth) 

Serve warm, I like to leave the crockpot on warm while hosting a party and enjoying family company with a cup of warm cider!
