Ingredients

Glogg
  • 1 gallon fresh cider
  • 5 cups apple brandy, such as Applejack
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, cut into quarters
  • 3 Fuji or McIntosh apples, cut into quarters
  • 3 cups fresh cranberries (reserve 1 cup for garnish)
  • 1 orange, cut into slices
  • 5-6 star anise
  • 8-10 cloves
  • 2-3 knobs fresh ginger, peeled (about the size of your thumb)
  • 2 sticks cinnamon
  • Garnish
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 15 sticks cinnamon
  • 1 green apple, cup into 15 thin slices
  • 1 red apple, cut into 15 thin slices
  • 15 strips orange zest (from one orange)
  • Chef notes

    As the cider heats in the slow cooker, it fills the house with the aroma of holiday cheer.

    Technique Tip: If you don't have a slow cooker, the glogg can be heated on the stovetop in an 8 quart pan to about 165° F. for 15 minutes.

    Swap Option: Leave out the brandy to make it nonalcoholic.

    Preparation

    Place all glogg ingredients into a slow cooker; cook on medium-high heat without the lid for 1½ hours.

    To serve, place one of each of the garnish items into each cup; ladle the glogg over the garnish in each cup.
