Hot Apple Cider

For those of you who did not have an opportunity to visit New England for the “leaf season”, here is a small sample. It is a beautiful time of year! It is also the perfect time to make some hot apple cider. There are many different preferences for how to spice up this wonderful seasonal drink, but here is my favorite.



1/2 gallon apple cider

1 cinnamon stick (ceylon)

3 cardamom pods

3 orange slices

2 tablespoons maple syrup



In a crock pot add all ingredients and heat.  Do not boil!

This time of year I like to keep this drink in a crock pot, on the kitchen counter, ready to go, when we are expecting guests!  There is nothing that says welcome like Hot Apple Cider.  Your guests will love it!
