Darling Clementines® Mulled Cider
- 3 Darling ClementinesⓇ
- 1 apple
- Juice of one half lemon
- 1 quart fresh apple cider (not sparkling or spiced)
- ½ cup water
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup spiced rum
- Zest of one clementine
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 star anise pods
- ½ tsp fresh nutmeg
- Slice clementines into thin rounds, cutting the clementines horizontally. Slice apples in the same fashion and drizzle with lemon juice to prevent browning. Set aside.
- In a slow cooker, combine water and honey and stir until honey is dissolved. Add the fresh cider and stir.
- Once honey has dissolved, add remaining ingredients to slow cooker and heat until the mixture comes to a simmer. Once simmering, turn the slow cooker to warm and serve after letting the mixture heat through about 30 minutes.
