One should NEVER boil

One should NEVER boil cider!
Boiling changes it to a most unpleasant, sharp flavor. Cider should be heated with the spices until you can smell it and it starts to steam but not boil/bubble. Best way to make this drink is in a slow-cooker at low temp which will keep it hot all through your party. I make mulled wine or spiced cider this way every year for the holidays. I sometimes do spiced cider, with no alchohol added in the slow cooker so kids can drink it, then add a bit of brandy or bourban as I serve to adults who want it.
