Crock Pot Cranberry Apple Cider

The holiday season is here!!  I am so ready for some great food, cozy weather, friends, family and traditions.  I am not one who likes to jump right into Christmas so today I am focusing on a recipe that is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.  

One part of Thanksgiving that I will always remember from my childhood is the smells and fragrance of the gathering.  We would walk into my aunt's house the aroma of fall, turkey and sweet pie filled our noses.  Football on the TV, family enjoying one another - it was like an instant relaxing feeling.  As we prepare for yet another Thanksgiving Dinner in just a few days I wanted to think about a way to really make my home fragrant and fall ready.

When we made this yummy cider for a small get together we had plenty left.  For a smaller group you could cut the ingredients in half.  We will be having this on Thanksgiving evening as a sweet treat for our guests.  



What new recipe are you hoping to try this Thanksgiving?

  1. Wouldn't the scent of this cider fill the house with a great 'seasonal' feeling on Thanksgiving? That would be a bonus!

  2. I am for anything in a crockpot. Drinks are something I haven't made much in the crockpot but I LOVE cider and I love cranberries! I am making this for sure at Thanksgiving!

  3. This recipe looks really good. I'm thrilled that you used all fresh ingredients. I can pretty much see me making this at Christmastime as I think it would go over better with my family. We are spending Thanksgiving with my husband's family.

  5. I'm embarrassed to say (but also not!) that I recently posted about how much I dislike slow cookers! Having said that, I think that something like this would turn out well!

  6. I love warm drinks in the cool months. Sadly, I rarely think to use the slow cooker to make them! Just thinking of the glorious aroma that this would make, makes me anxious to make it!
