Spiked Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Cider
There are so many reasons to love fall! I could go on and on about the weather, the beauty of autumn. Not to mention the flavors and tastes of fall. Everything apple and pumpkin-flavored and that is just fine in my book.Even going outdoors there’s a distinct smell that reminds you of bonfires, burning leaves, and hayrides. It truly is a beautiful time of the year!
One of our favorite fall traditions is, of course, going to the cider mill. This year I went on a field trip with my youngest daughter’s preschool class to Erwin Orchards in South Lyon, MI.
It was a fun little trip out into the orchard where we picked some Red Delicious apples. When it was time to go I purchased a gallon of their apple cider to take home with us. Turns out it was probably the best apple cider I’ve ever had, full of excellent flavor. I’ve already returned to purchase more.
Of course, our kids guzzled glasses of the cider nice and cold, very enjoyable. But when it came time for some football viewing one weekend, I decided this tasty cider would make an excellent warm adult beverage. I also decided that my trusty slow cooker would keep this tasty treat warm so it could be enjoyed at your leisure.
