  • 1 gallon apple cider
  • 1 liter apple juice
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar or brown sugar alternative
  • 1/2 tsp. whole allspice
  • 1 tsp. whole cloves
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. Clabber Girl Cornstarch
  • 2 cinnamon sticks (plus additional for garnish)
  • 2 oranges


Add cold apple cider and juice to a slow cooker and turn on low. Whisk in cornstarch and brown sugar or brown sugar alternative. 

Slice 2 oranges into halves. Squeeze juice from the orange halves into slow cooker andthen add the halves to the mixture.

Place the allspice, cloves, cinnamon sticks and nutmeg on a piece of cheesecloth and tie the cheesecloth so the spices cannot get out.

Let the cheesecloth float in the cider for 1-2 hours, then remove along with orange halves. Serve warm with a cinnamon stick for garnish.
