Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Cider

I found a delicious Fall apple cider recipe from Displaced Housewife:

Ingredients:

  • 11 medium apples, cored + quartered (gala, granny smith, honeycrisp)
  • 6 cups of water
  • 2 sticks of cinnamon
  • 6 cloves
  • 1 star anise
  • juice of 1 lemon

Instructions:

  1. Put your cored + quartered apples in your slow cooker. Cover with the water and add the cinnamon sticks, cloves and star anise. Juice your lemon straight into the slow cooker and cover.
  2. Cook on high heat for 7 hours.
  3. Fish out the cinnamon sticks, cloves and star anise. Throw them out or put them in your strained-out cider while it sits in the fridge.
  4. Put the apples and liquid in a high-speed blender and puree over gradually increasing speed.
  5. Strain the liquid into clean mason jars with lids. Save the apple pulp as noted above.
  6. Drink warm. Mixture will last in fridge for several weeks.
