Hot Apple Cider

Hot Apple Cider
Nothing warms you like a mug of hot apple cider! Enjoy this flavorful beverage with the added benefits of Collagen to keep you strong all winter long.

Ingredients

  • 1 orange
  • 10 medium apples (use a variety– I use Honeycrisp and Granny Smith)
  • 3 cinnamon sticks or 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp collagen
  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • granulated sugar*
  • Directions

  • Peel the orange and place the segments in the slow cooker.
  • Wash the apples, cut into quarters, and place in the slow cooker. Add the cinnamon sticks, ground cloves, collagen, and sugar. Add enough water to cover the fruit. (Peeling the apples makes it less bitter.)
  • Cook on low heat for 6-7 hours or high heat for 3 hours.
  • After 6-7 hours, the fruit will be very soft. Use a large spoon to mash the fruit and release its liquids. Allow the cider to cook on low for 1 more hour.
  • Very slowly strain the chunky liquid though a fine mesh sieve into a large pot or pitcher. You can discard the solids.
  • Strain the cider one more time to rid any other solids.
  • Serve the cider warm.
  • Leftover cider keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 5-7 days.
  • Warm up on the stove before serving– or drink it cold!
