and winter seasons there’s nothing I crave more than a mug full of delicious hot apple cider. Growing up, the
beginning of the holidays was marked with my Mom pouring all these tasty
ingredients into a giant crock-pot, filling our home up with the festive scent.
My brother and I would wait excitedly in the family room for our first hot
cider of the season.
Since my mum always kept her recipe under wraps, I assumed that this recipe was an intricate and detailed list of steps and ingredients that slowly boiled and melted together to create the mouth-wateringly good hot apple cider that kept me on my toes in our living room. Luckily, when I finally discovered the recipe I was surprised to find it was actually quite simple!

1. Pour apple juice and cranberry juice into a crock pot.
2. Add in a few sticks of Cinnamon and a spoonful of cloves into the juice mixture.
