Fall is in the air! I love camping in the fall. The brisk mornings and evenings, a good campfire, crisp leaves on the ground, and flannel shirts and jeans are perfect for spending time outside. While you’re planning your fall camping trips, add this recipe for the best apple cider recipe for camping. It’s perfect for heating up on your new or used RV’s outdoor kitchen. Your family will love having a pot of this ready to ladle into cups while sitting around the campsite.
Spiced Apple Cider Recipe
- 2 quarts apple cider
- 1 orange, sliced
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 tsp whole cloves
- 2 Tbs brown sugar
You’ll also need:
- Dutch oven
- Spoon & ladle
- Cheese cloth & string
- Measuring spoon
- Cutting board and knife
- Break the cinnamon sticks into pieces. Wrap the cinnamon stick pieces and whole cloves together in cheese cloth. Tie with a string.
- In a Dutch oven, combine apple cider with brown sugar. Stir to dissolve. Add orange slices and the spice packet wrapped in cheese cloth.
- Heat over medium-low, stirring occasionally. Ladle into cups.
One great idea is to make several bundles of these in advance. Store all of them together in a Ziploc bag and use one in each batch. You may want to make this every day while camping! So just bring a fresh orange and use a fresh packet of spices for each batch. RVs with outdoor kitchens give you plenty of room to store the ingredients for this apple cider recipe, so you won’t have to be running in and out of your RV for things.
Fall camping days are best spent outside. If you’re spending the day around your campsite, this apple cider recipe is great for keeping on low heat on your outdoor kitchen’s cooktop. If you’re spending the day away from your RV, you can still make this apple cider recipe and have it ready to enjoy when you’re back at the end of the day! Just make it in a Crock Pot and leave it on low heat inside your RV.
