Hot Apple Cider
Ingredients Procedure
  • 1/2 gallon apple juice or unfermented apple cider
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 2 sticks cinnamon
  • 2 allspice berries
  • 1/2 orange peel
  • 1/2 lemon peel

Pour the apple juice and maple syrup into a large pan. Place the cloves, cinnamon sticks, allspice, and citrus peelings on the center of a piece of cheesecloth. Bundle it up and tie it up with a piece of string. Place the bundle in the apple juice and cook for 5 to 10 minutes over moderate heat - do not let it boil. Turn off the heat (or turn it way down) and discard the spice bundle. Ladle the cider into mugs and if desired, put another cinnamon stick in each cup.
