Hot Spiced Apple Cider...

Here's three Hot Apple Cider recipes.


1/2 gallon apple cider
12 cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
1 c. orange juice
1/2 c. lemon juice

Heat apple cider. Add all ingredients. Allow the mixture to simmer for half hour or more.
Makes 12 servings


2 qts. apple cider
2 cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
1 tsp. whole all spice
1/4 c. brown sugar
8 orange slices

Combine all ingredients except oranges in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Simmer gently for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve into mugs or glass pitcher. Garnish with orange slices.

Hot Spice Apple Cider

Mix 2 quarts of apple cider with 1/2 cup of light brown sugar. Put 2 whole nutmegs,4 crushed up cinnamon sticks, 16 whole allspice, 16 whole cloves in a cheesecloth piece, tie it off with string and crush it just a little being careful not to tear cheesecloth. Put the cheesecloth spice ball in the apple cider and tie the string on the handle so it doesn't hang down and catch on fire on the burner. Bring it to a boil and simmer on low for 30 minutes. You can keep the spice ball and use again, put it in refrigerator, it's also great to put in simmering potpourri. I love oranges in the potpourri, also.
