Slow-Cooker Spiced Cranberry-Apple Cider
In 1972 as a new bride, I received a Betty Crocker Cookbook. This recipe was in the book. Each and everytime I made it, I took home an empty crock. The original differed a bit, which I still prefer. Try the original one:
Omit Cranberry (or not - original did not have it)
One large orange
One bottle of orange juice (no pulp)
Instead of placing the allspice into the coffee filter, rather punch small holes into the orange and place them into the holes. Make the drink as directed and place the orange in the cider to 'slow cook'. It absorbs the flavor of the orange and the orange juice is great flavor. I have also sliced oranges and placed into the pot.
Because the OJ isn't clear like the cider and/or cranberry, it is a bit cloudy, but good just the same!!!!
