Nothing beats the smell of apple cider when you come home after a long, cold day. The blend of cinnamon, ginger and clove is the quintessential scent of fall. While it is easy to buy apple cider, absolutely nothing beats the taste of homemade cider that is seasoned with fresh ingredients rather than dry powders. And it really couldn’t be easier to make.

Vegan and Gluten-Free Crockpot Apple Cider

Ingredients:

2 bottles (2 quarts) of organic apple juice
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1 orange
8 whole allspice berries
2 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp. whole cloves

And the secret ingredient:

1/2 cup maple syrup

Supplies:

Small square of Cheesecloth
Crockpot

In the cheesecloth, place the cinnamon sticks, cloves and allspice berries, and tie the bag tightly. Cut the orange into wedges, leaving the peel on. Put all ingredients, including the spice bag and orange wedges, into your crockpot. Cover and set to “low”. ┬áSimmer for as little as 2 hours (for full flavor), or all day if you’re headed out for some errands. When you’re ready to serve, simply remove the spice bag and oranges, and serve.

If you are so inclined, a little brandy is excellent with this cider. Because it is made from fruit, brandy is typically gluten free.
