Apples Apples and Apples. Now is a great time to be picking apples in the Midwest. My daughter, who is in preschool, recently took a field trip to the apple orchard and we have had apples on our minds ever since!
Unfortunately we did not buy any apples from the
orchard because, well, they were just way over-priced. However, thanks to a blog titled Over The Big Moon, I found this great crock pot apple cider recipe on Pinterest. It looked easy and it did not require any actual apples!
What is Needed for Crock Pot Apple Cider
- Apple juice
- 1 orange
- 12-15 whole cloves
The instructions are simple. Fill up the crock pot with your apple juice.
Then take your orange and 12-15 whole cloves. Push the pointy end of the cloves into the orange- all over it.
Place the orange into the apple juice filled crock pot.
Let sit for 8 or more hours on low.
How the Crock Pot Apple Cider Tasted
I initially tried it hot, from the crock pot after 8 hours. To me it had a very strong and tart taste. I liked it, but felt it was a little overwhelming. I watered it down slightly by placing a few ice cubes into it and it was delicious! I might have put too many cloves in it. If I were to do this again- I would go with the lower end (maybe 12) cloves rather than the 15 I used.
While I would prefer to purchase apple cider over making this crock pot version- it was still a good pin. I mostly loved its simplicity! I would thumbs up and PinProve this Crock Pot Apple Cider pin!
