What better drink than some nice hot spiced cider for your guests for the holidays? It will give a wonderful Christmas smell to your home as well.  This is one I am going to do this weekend while I finish wrapping gifts.


METHOD: Slow Cooker

TIME: Prep: 5 min. Cook: 2 hours


  • 2 cinnamon sticks (3 inches)
  • 1 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1 teaspoon whole allspice
  • 2 quarts apple cider
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 orange, sliced


Place cinnamon, cloves and allspice in a double thickness of cheesecloth; bring up corners of cloth and tie with a string to form a bag. Place cider and brown sugar in a 3-qt. slow cooker; stir until sugar dissolves. Add spice bag. Place orange slices on top. Cover and cook on low for 2-5 hours. Remove spice bag before serving. Yield: 2 quarts.
