I love to see my kid’s faces light up when they come home to wonderful smells filling the house. And slow cooked apple anything is sure to make your house smell as good as it gets this side of heaven. As my kids have gotten older they have come to love “custom” warm drinks, like the ones served in coffee houses and such. This slow cooked apple cider is the perfect treat at the end of a school day or on a lazy Saturday afternoon. During the colder months, I make a batch on the weekend and store whatever we don’t finish in the fridge to quickly heat up after school or for weeknight treats. Don’t let the simplicity fool ya, though. This Caramel Apple Cider is definitely party worthy as well!
I hope you get to make it soon and enjoy some slow sippin’ time with your loved ones during these cold spells!
Since this is such a simple recipe, I’m keeping it quick with the photos today. You basically just dump it all in and stir 🙂
- 64 ounces apple juice
- 12 ounce jar caramel
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon allspice
- Place apple juice in 5 or 6 quart slow cooker. Stir in spices and caramel and place heat on low. After one hour, stir well again.
- Continue cooking on low 3 more hours.
- Serve in mugs topped with whipped cream and caramel drizzle, if desired.
*If you're in a hurry and have time to stand over the stove, you can make this in a pot just by heating over medium heat, stirring constantly, and once it comes to a simmer, allow to simmer for thirty minutes, stirring often.
