Best Ever Hot Apple Cider


Hey folks, I just wanted to pass along the best ever and, more importantly, EASIEST ever hot apple cider recipe. I've made this cider multiple times over the past several years, and it is always a huge hit! Not to mention it will make your home smell like heaven while it cooks up. :)  Perfect to have brewing on Thanksgiving day or during the weeks leading up to Christmas!

Enjoy...

Best Ever Hot Apple Cider

Ingredients:

+ 1 jug of good quality apple cider (I prefer the kind you have to shake up due to settling at the bottom
   (Texans: Louisburg brand from HEB is awesome!)
+ 1 large orange
+ 4-5 whole cloves
+ 3-4 cinnamon sticks

Directions: Pour desired amount of cider into a crockpot on high heat. Stick your orange with 4-5 cloves (cloves are pretty sharp, and they pierce the orange's skin quite easily!) and add the orange into the pot. Throw in your cinnamon sticks and let it all simmer for anywhere from 2-4 hours, or until flavors are nicely melded. Remove the crockpot lid at any point during the process to better allow the heavenly aroma into your home! Serve hot, with a cinnamon stick for garnish, and enjoy.

*Note: Cider could also be cooked in a regular pot on the stove, but do not leave unattended.

  5. As anyone ever told you that you're the warmest person ever? Call me weird, but everytime I see one of your posts I automatically think about how warm and inviting your home must be. It just makes me want to give you a big hug! Haha! Ps. I think you should live where it is Fall all year. Is there such a place?
