Spiced Cranberry Cider in Crock Pot
The winter really came to Nebraska. Yesterday we experienced our first snow here. It was nice to wake up in the morning and see about an inch of snow on the ground. When its nice and snowy like this it feels really cozy to seat around a fireplace and drink this very sweet Spiced Cranberry Cider which is sure to warming you up. I promised my daughter that after she comes back from school we go outside and made our first snow man, unfortunately by the time she came home we have only very little snow left and our snow man appeared to be very small.
But we still had fun making it and after words we were drinking Spiced Cranberry Cider which was yummy!!!
This hot cider could be a great addition to any holiday dinner.
For about 12 servings you will need:
• 5 cups of cranberry juice
• 7 cups of water
• 3 small apples cored and sliced into thick chunks
• 3 mandarin oranges or 1 orange pilled and divided into big segments
• 3/4 cup brown sugar
• 3/4 cup of lemon juice
• 3 Anise stars
• 5 cloves
• 2 cinnamon sticks
Bring all dry ingredients and fruits and berries from above into large 6 1/2 to7 Quart Crock pot.
Then pour cranberry juice mixed with water and lemon juice and set it on High.
Cook cider for about 5 hours.
Drink it hot and stay warm!
