This creates a delightful aroma. Use burgundy or any other full-bodied red wine.
Combine the cider and brown sugar in a large stainless steel or enameled pot. Tie the cinnamon, cloves, and peel in cheesecloth, and add to the cider. Slowly bring just to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Remove the spice bag and serve hot.
