  • 5 apples peeled and cut in thick pieces
  • 1 mandarin orange or regular orange, peeled
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • ½ tsp all spice
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • squeeze lemon juice or add whole peeled lemon


  • Add all of the ingredients into a slow cooker for 3 hours.
  • Mash the apples and cook for another hour.
  • Strain the mixture several times into a jug using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth until smooth.
  • Add sugar till you reach your desired sweetness. The ¼ cup was enough for me.
  • Serve with sliced apples and a cinnamon stick and refrigerate leftovers. Enjoy!
