2litres of fresh apple juicenot the shelf-stable kind...fresh apple juice is usually found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store
2-3cupsfresh orange juiceI like to use the kind with pulp
2tablespoonsof mulling spicesalternatively, use a combination of whole cloves, nutmeg and allspice
Add the juices to your slow cooker, along with the sliced orange, fresh cranberries, cinnamon sticks and mulling spices. Stir everything together well and turn your slow cooker to low. Let the cider simmer away in the slow cooker for about 4-5 hours.
After 4-5 hours, remove the orange slices, cranberries and cinnamon sticks with a sieve or slotted spoon and add the sliced apple, and the new fresh cranberries, sliced orange and cinnamon sticks (the old ones will have flavoured the cider beautifully but they'll look awful after simmering in the juice all day. Feel free to skip the garnishes if you're not worried about presentation!)
