Hot Spiced Cider

Hot Spiced Cider

8 cups apple cider or apple juice
1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar
6 inches stick cinnamon
1 tsp whole allspice
1 tsp whole cloves
8 thin orange wedges or slices (optional)
8 whole cloves (optional)

In a large saucepan combine apple cider and brown sugar. For a spice bag, place
cinnamon, allspice, and 1 tsp whole cloves in a double thickness of cheesecloth.
Bring up corners of cheesecloth and tie with string. add spice bag to cider

Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile,
stud orange wedges with whole cloves. Remove and discard the spice bag. Serve
the cider in mugs with a studded orange wedge in each. Makes 8 (1 cup) servings.

Note from Lena-- Use the crock pot and don't bother with the boiling. Set it all
up and let it simmer on Low at least 4 hours. No peeking! Serve it up with the
orange wedges.
