Can I Make Cider In My Slow Cooker Crock Pot?
Our prefer method is stove top for one very selfish reason. We love the wonderful lovely aromas of the cinnamon and cloves lingering in the house from this cozy warm beverage.
If you want to set and forget it. Slow cooker is a great alternative. Add all the ingredients to your crock pot. Set on high heat for 1:30 hours. Bonus when we cook it in the crock pot we reserve the solid for our breakfast yogurt or oatmeal bowls.
How To Make Pear Cider
Step 1: Combine pears, sugar, cloves in a large stock pot and cover with apple juice.
Step 2: The juice should be about 2 inches higher than the pears. So that the pears are fully surmerge in liquard.
Step 3: Bring mixture to a boil.
Step 4: Reduce to a simmer and cook for 1 hour uncovered.
Step 5: After 1 hour mash the pears. Add cinnamon sticks and cranberries. Cover the pot and simmer for another hour.
Step 6: Let the mixture cool for 30 minutes.
Step 7: Strain it through a fine mesh sieve ( I did this twice) to remove the solids.
Step 8: Serve warm with cinnamon sticks.
Step 9: Garnish with cinnamon, pear and orange slices.
Store - cider in the refrigerator for about a week.
Freezer - store in an airtight container or freezer ziplock bag. Leaving a few inch of space as the cider will expand during freezing and could rupture the container.
