In a slow cooker (Crock Pot), add the apple cider, fresh ginger, star anise, whole cloves, cardamom pods, cinnamon, vanilla bean, allspice, lemon, brown sugar, apple & pear pieces.
Stir to combine everything. Set it to high and leave for 2 hours or until hot. When it's hot, stir it again to make sure all the spices are incorporated.
Turn the slow cooker down to the warm setting. You can strain out the spices and fruit if you want or leave it in.
