Crock Pot Apple Cider

We had maintenance over at our house the other day when I was making applesauce, and the repair guy asked me if I was making apple cider, because he thought it smelled amazing.  I told him no, but it got me to thinking about actually making apple cider with some of our apples.

So today, that is what I did.

It's a fairly easy process.  The most difficult part is straining the apple slices and spices out once it's done cooking, and frankly, that isn't even difficult.

This apple cider is silky smooth, and has a nice spicy taste.  I did not add sugar to mine, but you are welcome to add it to yours, depending on your tastes.

Crock Pot Apple Cider


12 small apples (cored and sliced)
4 cinnamon sticks
1/2 tsp ground cloves (or about 15 whole cloves)
1/8 tsp nutmeg


Place sliced apples into crock pot with spices.  Add enough water to just cover the apples (too much water will dilute your cider).

Cook on high for 6-8 hours.

Pour contents of the crock pot through a strainer to remove the apples and cinnamon sticks.
