Foodie Friday: Slow-Cooker Apple Cider


With the crisp weather of fall, there is nothing I enjoy more than cozying up with a book and a hot beverage. Last year, I discovered a wonderful recipe for slow-cooker apple cider that quickly became a favourite fall treat. If you are having guests over and want something a little special, bookmark this recipe. 

How to make slow-cooker apple cider:



  • 4 litres of apple juice. (If you want to make the apple juice from scratch in the slow-cooker, check out this recipe from Gimme Some Oven.)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • 1 tablespoon whole allspice
  • 1 orange, sliced


  1. Pour apple juice into your slow cooker.
  2. Cut oranges into large slices and push cloves into the peel around each slice. 
  3. Add oranges, cinnamon sticks and sprinkle in allspice.
  4. Cook on low for 4-8 hours.
  5. Strain and serve.

When the slow-cooker is working its magic, the aromas of spices and apples will permeate the house. Take a moment to breathe it in!
