Hot Apple Cider

When spending time with friends or family at home, here’s something to warm your loved ones on these chilly winter days.

Serves 16 1 gallon apple cider 1 orange, unpeeled, cut into slices 1/4 cup whole cloves 4 sticks cinnamon 1/4 cup honey, preferably cranberry honey

  1. Combine the cider, orange slices, cloves, cinnamon, and honey in a large pot over medium heat. If you are picky about things floating in your cider, make a little bundle out of cheesecloth and place the cinnamon and cloves inside before adding to the cider. I like to chew on cloves, so I just toss everything in. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer over low heat for an hour or so to spread these lovely winter aromas around your home.

  2. If you’re serving it to adults, you can optionally add 1 cup of sherry. It might make everyone want to go sledding!
