I actually made this in a slow cooker while I was preparing other dishes for a party. Put all the ingredients in a cheesecloth (thick paper towels to make two sacks would work just fine)and tie it with kitchen twine. This method keeps you from having to fish around the ingredients when it is ready to serve. Slow cook on low for about 4 hours, stirring occasionally. This was so easy to make and the aroma that fills your home while it's cooking is just divine! Thank you!


Do yourself a favor and omit the brown sugar from this recipe. I have a sweet tooth, but the sugar in this cider is unnecessary. It left a film on my teeth I can't get off even after brushing twice! That said, the spices and flavor of the cider were wonderful. I didn't have any problems with my coffee maker, either. Although, I think it would be easier to do as others suggested and make it on the stovetop or slow cooker. I love the orange in it. Will make again with no added sugar.


I made this recipe in a larg pot on the stove and skipped the step of putting everything throught the coffee maker. I wish I hadn't skipped that step. It smelled wonderful while on the stove, and the first few cups were good (or so I was told) but when I finally had a chance to get a cup, it had a very strong flavor. Maybe the cloves or one of the other spices, but I think if I would have removed all of the spices from the pot after the first 20 minutes, then it would have just kept warm and the flavor wouldn't have been so strong. I served mine with a dollop of whipped cream on top of each mug. I will make again, but follow the recipe exactly.
