Hot Spiced Cider with Orange

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
I tried this recipe, only I tweaked it to suit my family. Firstly, the coffee maker was a bad idea. My drip basket backed up and overflowed everywhere, so I switched it to the crock pot; much better idea! Not to mention that the cider left a mess in my coffee maker. Once that was cleaned up, I switched to the crock and it was wonderful! I didn't have any oranges, so I used dehydrated orange peel. Also, I omitted the clove & salt and used all powder spices as I didn't have the whole nutmeg or cinnamon stick. I also increased all of the amounts of spice, because my family loves them. I changed the sugar and used organic coconut sugar instead of the brown sugar. I mixed the sugar into the simmering crock and put the other spices into a cheesecloth and let them simmer in the crock. Overall, this was a good reference recipe! I gave it 3 stars because of the coffee maker idea. That was a fiasco.
