Is there anything better than a hot mulled cider on a chilly winter's eve? Zeffer Cider Co.'s head cidermaker Jody Scott has perfect the ultimate winter beverage.
2 litres Zeffer Apple Crumble Cider
10 grams brown sugar (optional)
1 orange, sliced
2 star anise
2 cinnamon sticks
Fill a slow cooker (or pot) with Zeffer’s Apple Crumble Cider, add the sugar (optional), the sliced orange rounds, and finally the cinnamon sticks and star anise.
Cover the pot or slow cooker and heat until the flavours meld. If using the slow cooker – leave for 2 hours on low or warm. Serve in a glass or mug garnished with additional orange slices and cinnamon stick.
Cook's note: a slow cooker does double duty of both mulling the cider and keeping it warm for hours. Serves 8.
