This delicious recipe for crockpot hot apple cider is a traditional beverage, sometimes called wassail, that usually consists of spiced wine or beer flavored with roasted apples. This non-alcoholic apple cider version can be enjoyed by everyone.
It's perfect for a cold winter day after you have come into your warm cozy house from sledding or skating. This drink is also delicious for entertaining. If you have a pretty crockpot, you can serve the beverage right out of that appliance. Be sure you supply a heatproof ladle and sturdy mugs with handles.
Gather the ingredients.
Combine the apple cider, brown sugar, ground cloves, ground allspice, cinnamon sticks, and the orange studded with 5 whole cloves in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker.
Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
Serve in mugs, garnished with star anise, if using, and enjoy.
- You can keep this beverage warm for about 2 hours after it is done cooking. Just turn the slow cooker to "keep warm." This recipe can be cut in half for a smaller gathering.
