Homemade Organic Slow Cooker Apple Cider

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 1 gallon organic unfiltered apple juice
  • 1 Tbsp. organic mulling spices (two small spice bags)

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Pour the apple cider into a slow cooker along with the mulling spices.
  2. Cook on low for 8-12 hours, or until desired color is reached; I prefer it a darker brown.
  3. Drink warm out of the slow cooker, or chill and serve later.
  4. Enjoy!
