Apple Cider Guide
Apple’s are everywhere and available almost at every party of the year. So, making a mulled apple cider is what most people would find an easier job. The first thing is: get a pure fresh apple cider which shouldn’t be pasteurized, as they aren’t fresh, and would make the whole process complete for you. You can easily get it from the farmer’s store, and mostly they are placed in the refrigerator. Just grab it - you can freeze it too. Make sure you don’t get sweetened apple cider as it’s not fresh and not preferable.
This step is what demands time and patience from you. Combine all the spices you want to add in cider, like cinnamon sticks as long as a cigar (don’t smoke kids), ginger, freshly ground nutmeg, and cloves. Then store them in a container for several weeks before making the mulled cider. The more you wait, the more delicious the cider!
Spices floating over the top might look good, but it becomes very unpleasant when they come in with every sip. Tie up the species in a cloth or use the teabag.
Once you are done with every previous step, it’s time for the slow cooking of spices you prepared for the mulled cider. For slow cooking, a slow cooker is a perfect appliance for this purpose. If you are making apple cider, then don’t add the sugar, as apple cider already contains enough sugar. Add the orange slices to the cider - it would really compliment the taste and the fragrance of the mulled cider. Once you have added a wide range of spices, apple cider, and orange slices, slow cook it for 4 hours. If you want to add alcohol, don’t add it before the slow cooking.
