Mulled Apple Cider

Mulled Apple Cider With Orange


1 gallon apple cider
3 cinnamon sticks, broken into 3-inch pieces
8 to 10 whole cloves
1 lemon or navel orange, sliced crosswise
Optional: Fresh ginger (2-inch piece, peeled, and cut into thin slices)


In a large stainless steel or enameled pot, combine all the ingredients. Slowly bring just to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.

Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a heat-proof pitcher and serve the mulled cider warm.

Note: You can also use a spice bag and just remove the spice bag when done simmering.

Serve in a mug with one of the cinnamon sticks!


Serves 8 to 10.
