Saturday Sweetness: Apple Pie Mulled Cider

Last week, I made a mulled cider recipe that I found online. I received a lot of compliments on it, but it wasn’t to my taste. Mulled cider was on my mind for days afterwards, so I concocted a recipe of my own and made it today. I like it a lot better. Here’s my recipe:

Apple Pie Mulled Cider

1 gallon (16 cups) apple cider or apple juice
4 cinnamon sticks
2 vanilla beans
2 oranges

Get out your crock pot or slow cooker and place it where you want to serve the cider. Toss in the cinnamon sticks. Split the vanilla beans and scrape out the seeds. Add vanilla beans and seeds to the crock pot. Juice and zest the oranges and add to the crock pot. Pour the apple cider over the yumminess already in the crock pot and give it a good stir. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Grab your strainer and take out the cinnamon sticks, vanilla bean pods and some of the zest.  Enjoy!
