"This tasty cider is made with cinnamon sticks and cloves. It is an excellent project for elementary school students; second graders love it. Each child can participate by placing cloves in a slice of orange. The project has a yummy ending, and can be prepared in 30 minutes." — EAMON G

2 (6 ounce) cans
frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
3 1/2 cups
4 (2 inch) sticks
I make something similar to this, but it is way to sweet for adults this way, I cut it with more water and then make it nice and spicey by adding some ground cinnamon and even a little cayenne pepper, some allspice makes a nice addition as well. I love using the slow cooker to make it, the best idea ever! The house smells so good for hours after it's all gone.
This must be a mistake- 60 cloves and 2 whole oranges in 3 1/2 cups of water? It must have been a typo- 3 1/2 quarts or liters sounds a bit more realistic
My recipe: 2 quarts of apple cider (or 1 bottle of apple juice), 2 cinnamon sticks, 5-10 cloves, and if its an adult party, 2 cups of Captain Morgan's- throw it in the slow cooker so you don't have to tend to it, creates a nice aroma throughout the house
Way to sweet for adults.
This recipe did not yield the quantity i expected nor the flavor. Had to cook an extra long time to get hte cinnamon flavor into the mix and by then there was only 1/2 a gallon even though i doubled the ingredients.
I like this recipe because I am able to get all of the ingredients where I live. We don't have apple juice concentrate, so I just fill my slow cooker with apple juice and then add the rest oranges, cloves, and cinnamon. We think it's very tasty, and it makes the house smell good.
