Its nice to find a recipe for a slow cooker you can use for 1 or 2 people.I found this easy to do. My only advice would be: Don't drink the rest of the bottle of cider why you are preparing it lol - 19 Nov 2011


We loved it! I misread the instructions though and used Apple Cider Vinegar instead of Apple Cider! It was tangy and tasty! - 13 Oct 2013


I didn't tweaked the recipe, just increased the numbers as I have 5 q slow cooker. After 8 hours on low, 1.5h on keep warm meet was extremely dry. What went wrong? - 03 Feb 2015
