Shop Kitchen ▾
  • 2 quarts apple cider or apple juice
  • 1 cup orange juice*
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice*
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 8 inches stick cinnamon, broken
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 3 slices fresh ginger
In a 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, combine cider, orange juice, lemon juice, and honey. Stir to dissolve honey.
For a spice bag, cut a 6-inch square from a double thickness of 100%-cotton cheesecloth. Place cinnamon, cloves, and ginger in the center of the cloth. Bring the corners together and tie closed with 100%-cotton kitchen string. Add spice bag to slow cooker.
Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Remove the spice bag and discard.


  • Test Kitchen Tip:

    If you squeeze fresh oranges and lemons for the juice, use a vegetable peeler to cut several wide strips of peel from the fruit, avoiding the white pith underneath. Add the peel to the spice bag.
