Quick Tip: Any apple cider recipe can also be made in a slow cooker. Simply follow the directions for any apple cider recipe, but heat the ingredients inside your slow cooker instead of on the stove. The added bonus to this method is that you can then turn the slow cooker down to its lowest temperature setting to keep the cider warm.
