How to Make Crock pot Apple cider and hard cider


  1. Wash apples to remove any dirt/chemicals etc. Cut apples into 4 parts (original recipe said that you can keep seeds in it and others say to remove, you can decide which you prefer). Put into crock pot.

    Add spices and cover apples with water, do not have to be completely submerged as apples will cook down. Mix everything around to blend ingredients.

    Cook for 8-10 hours on low for stronger flavor, stirring it occasionally. Or you can cook it on high for 4-5 hours stirring it every hour.

    Mash with potato masher.

    Strain out cider. Now this is where you have options. I have heard everything from straining it through a cotton pillowcase, straining it through a colander a couple times, or even a mesh strainer. One author said they liked the bits of apple in their cider another said they wanted it all removed. So strain to your preference.

  2. Now as for the spices in the ingredient list I have found cider recipes cooked with honey, oranges and lemons so you can add those too if you wish. I plan to add some citrus honey to mine.

    As for the Hard Cider you can add rum if you like, or you can put it in a demijohn with some beer yeast and let ferment for about a month for one batch and two weeks for another for a weaker alcohol content.
