Nothing says fall like mulled apple cider!  The warm and homey aroma from this recipe fills your whole home and it a great way to welcome family home after a long day.  It is also great to create a cozy atmosphere on chilly fall days or winter weekends.

The secret to this quick and easy mulled apple cider recipe is the addition of five-spice powder.  The traditional recipes usually call for pumpkin pie spices.  The addition of five-spice powder in this recipe adds a little something special to an already great tasting combination.

Mulled Apple Cider 1 of 3

Mulled Apple Cider Ingredients:

  • ½ gallon fresh apple cider
  • 1 medium organic orange, sliced
  • ½ c. fresh orange juice
  • 3 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 10-15 whole cloves
  • 2 t. ground cinnamon
  • 2 t. five-spice powder
  • Fresh orange slices, garnish
  • Whole cinnamon sticks, garnish

I like using a large slow cooker for this recipe like the Crock Pot 7-Quart Slow Cooker, because it is easy to use and dishwasher safe.  If your slow cooker isn't dishwasher safe and you want clean up to be quick and easy I like using slow cooker liners when I know I'm limited on time.
