Slow-cooker hot mulled cider

When it is cold outside mulled cider is a delicious treat that is easy to make, warms your insides and makes the house smell fabulous. We like to do it in the slow-cooker to enjoy the fragrance for hours.

1 gallon apple cider
1/3 cup brown sugar
15 whole cloves
10 whole allspice berries
5 sticks cinnamon
Zest of 2 oranges

Place all ingredients in slow cooker and heat on low 8-10 hours. You can enjoy a mug after 2 hours or so, the longer it heats, the stronger the flavor.

For an extra festive touch for the adults you can add brandy or rum.

A delicious twist is mulled cranberry juice using cranberry juice, Craisins, a dash of vanilla and honey.

Enjoy.
