Orange Cranberry Mulled Cider (a la Slow Cooker)

Every year starting in late October I make this apple cider. It’s so very simple and effortless, but I still receive numerous compliments and requests for the recipe.


  • 5 cups of apple cider
  • 5 cups of cranberry juice
  • 4 oranges, sliced and sectioned
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar to taste
  • 2 t whole allspice (whole preferred but ground is ok)
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 t cloves, whole


  1. Place all of the spices in a coffee filter and tie with a string (make sure this is not a colored string).
  2. Stir briefly.
  3. Add the filter and cook on low for 3-4 hours.
  4. Add the oranges and cook on low for an additional 1-2 hours.
  5. Turn the slow cooker to warm, remove the filter, stir, and add additional sugar, if needed.
  6. Serve warm, and go a-wassailing (without the alcohol!).

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
