Nothing says fall like Spiced Apple Cider! Embracing apples’ natural sweetness, it has only 3 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep. This is one of my favorite ways to use the Instant Pot’s slow-cooker setting, because it will fill the house with such wonderful scents. Personally, I like to keep my cider simple, but if you want to try something different? Use grape or cranberry juice instead of the apple juice, or split one of them 50/50 with it. You can also vary up the seasoning with some lemon zest, orange slices, or ginger instead of or in addition to the cinnamon and cloves! And for an especially decadent treat, stir in 1/2-3/4 cup caramel sauce for caramel apple cider. (It’ll still be AIP-friendly if you use Sweet Apricity‘s, or make your own.)
