Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time6 hrs
Total Time6 hrs 10 mins
Servings: 6 Cups
- 10-12 apples quartered, I use honeycrisp and granny smith
- 1 pomegranate quartered (optional)
- 1 orange quartered
- 2 teaspoon cinnamon sticks or 1 cinnamon
- 2-6 tablespoons maple syrup depending on your taste
Add the apple, pomegranate, orange, cinnamon sticks and 2 tablespoons maple syrup to your crockpot. Immerse the ingredients with water (about 5-6 cups). Cover with a lid and cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 4-5 hours. Alternately you can combine everything in a large soup pot and cook over medium heat for 3 hours or until the apples begin to break down.
Carefully strain the mixture through a mesh strainer, discard the fruit and cinnamon sticks. If desired strain the cider one more time to remove any pulp. Taste and adjust the maple syrup to your liking. Serve warm or cold. Cider will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
