Hot spiced apple juice or cider is a delightful vegan treat on any chilly day and for festive holidays and gatherings. We prefer to make and serve this beverage in a slow cooker or crock pot, set on “warm”.
Hot Spiced Apple Juice Ingredients:
Cooking Utensils and Equipment:
If you do not have a few hours to allow the ingredients to heat in the crock pot, preheat the apple juice or cider and water in a pot on the stove top or in a microwave oven in an appropriate container. We use a 2-cup “Pyrex” measuring cup and heat on “high” in the microwave oven for 4 minutes, adding the contents to the preheated crock pot, and repeating this procedure until all the juice is heated.
Add the Cinnamon, Allspice and Cloves to the first batch of warmed Apple Juice or Cider in the crock pot and let simmer for about 1/2 hour.
We set the cups out beside the crock pot, and allow people to serve themselves with a ladle.
