Ms. Shirley’s Hot Apple Cider

We had some of this at a dance the other night and Ms. Shirley was kind enough to share her recipe with me. There are many different things you can add to this to make it ‘yours’ and I’ve included some add-ins at the bottom of the recipe. You can also heat this on the stove instead of a crockpot.

Ms. Shirley’s Hot Apple Cider

Ingredients:

  • 6-8 c. apple cider
  • 1/4 – 1/2 c. Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup
  • 2 cinnamon sticks

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a large crockpot and heat until warm.

Serve hot!

Add-ins:

I love the hot apple cider that they serve at the Biltmore Estate in NC. You can add in a couple of these or just one or two to spice up your cider a little bit.

  • use real maple syrup instead of Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup
  • use 1/4 c. brown sugar in place of syrup
  • 1/2 c. orange juice
  • 2 t. cinnamon instead of cinnamon sticks
  • 4-6 cloves or 1-2 t. ground cloves
  • 1/4-1/2 t. allspice
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • a pinch of salt
