I got this recipe from the Sandlake Country Inn on the Oregon coast. They always have a hot pot of it on a table in the entrance hall for their guests. We love it!
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 quarts apple cider
- 1⁄2 teaspoon allspice
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons whole cloves
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1⁄4 cup orange juice concentrate
- Combine all ingredients in a crock pot. Cover and simmer on low for 2-4 hours. Strain before serving hot. Serves 8.
Nearly identical to the recipe I follow which has 1/2 C brown sugar. The orange slices just make it! I use a coffee filter to put the spices in as I never have cheesecloth.
Very warming and comforting on a cold, dreary day. The spices and flavors were perfect. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.
We really enjoyed this recipe! It was easy to prepare and made good use of the slow cooker/ crock pot on Christmas day when the hob was full already. We don't have orange juice concentrate here so I cut one orange into wedges and threw it in. Next time I think I would use half an orange. Thanks for a lovely treat!
