Instant Pot Mulled Cider Slow Cooker Recipe


Serves 4

Active Time 10 minutes

Pressure/Manual (High) Natural Release

  • 4 large Granny Smith apples, cut into 8 wedges and cored
  • 4 cups water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • whipped cream or coconut cream, for serving (optional)


  1. In the Instant Pot, combine the apples, water, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves
  2. Secure the lid on the pot
  3. Close the pressure-release valve
  4. Select MANUAL and set the pot at HIGH pressure for 10 minutes
  5. At the end of the cooking time, allow the pot to sit undisturbed until the pressure has released
  6. Stir the mixture thoroughly
  7. Place a large strainer over a large bowl
  8. Ladle the apple mixture into the strainer
  9. You don’t want to just lift the liner out of the pot and pour all of it in one go, as it won’t all go through at once
  10. Using the back of the ladle, mash the apples a bit to get some pulp into the cider
  11. Serve the cider hot or chilled, topped with whipped cream or coconut cream, if desired
