Hot Spiced Cider-Ingredients
- 2 quarts apple cider (I actually bought apple juice because it had lower sugar)
- 1 orange, quartered
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- cinnamon candy-red hots were unavailable so I got cinnamon jolly ranchers and put in about 8
- 12 whole cloves
What to do:
Put it all into a medium to large size pot. If you have cheesecloth you can certainly use that, I just throw everything in and fish it out with a slotted spoon when I'm done! Let it sit on the stove on low all day, or sip/serve to the kids when they come in. You can certainly add water, as some recipes recommend (up to a quart), but I like it the way it is.
If I were an adult, trapped with a bunch of small people home from school and acting all crazy and cooped up, I might possibly splash in some Fireball for myself. Just saying.
