Hot Spiced Cider

I’m looking forward to the cool nights of Autumn so I can make this cider and sit by the firepit with my husband. Very cozy.

  • 6 cups Apple Cider
  • 20 Whole Cloves
  • 4 sticks Cinnamon
  • 1 whole Nutmeg
  • 10 whole Allspice Berries
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lemon Zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon Orange Zest

Combine ingredients except lemon and orange zest over medium heat. Heat to boiling and reduce heat to medium low simmer about 5 minutes. Add lemon and orange zest. Remove from heat and let stand for 30 minutes. Return to heat and gently warm the cider. Strain out the soilds and serve warm.
