Equipment

Instant Pot
Pitcher

Ingredients
  

  • 3-4 Apples cored & sliced (Honey Crisp, Gala, and Granny Smith)
  • 1 Orange peeled, sliced & seeds removed
  • ½ inch Fresh Ginger
  • 1 cup Cranberries
  • 3 Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Cloves
  • 3 Star Anise
  • 3-4 tablespoon Sugar
  • 4 cups Water

Instructions
 

Instant Pot:

  • Add apples to the inner pot of Instant Pot. I have added Granny Smith, Gala, and Honey Crisp Apples for tart and sweet flavor.
  • Then add Orange, Cranberries, Ginger, Cinnamon, Star Anise, and Cloves to it. Then add sugar (as needed) with water.
  • Note: Add water till all fruits and spices are submerged.
  • Close lid and HIGH pressure cook for 10 minutes. When timer beeps, let pressure release naturally (NPR) or Quick Release after 10 minutes.
  • After pressure is released and it is safe to open the lid, fish out the spices and strain the cider using a mesh strainer. And serve it hot or cold.

Slow Cooker:

  • Place Apples, Orange, Cranberries, Ginger, Cinnamon, Star Anise, and Cloves to the slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours. Take the spices out and serve.

Notes

I use different apples like Granny Smith, Gala, and Honey Crisp - gives tart and sweet flavor to the cider.
Orange helps in bringing tanginess and color to Apple Cider
Adding Cranberries gives a nice color. I like the flavor too.
I add peeled oranges in Instant pot when pressure cooking, otherwise they turn a bit bitter.
Sweetness: You can add Maple Syrup, Sugar, Honey, Sweetener, etc as per your taste and preference.
You can also add orange juice, pineapple juice - they also make Cider super tasty.
Spices: Adding Cinnamon, Cloves / All Spices, and Star Anise adds complex layered flavor.
