Mulled Wine

This creates a delightful aroma. Use burgundy or any other full-bodied red wine.


1 orange, sliced and seeded
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups water
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 bottle 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.

Recipe has the wrong directions (they're for mulled cider, apparently).
