Hot Spiced Cider


 As the coming days begin to cool, what could be better than the scent of hot spiced wine or cider drifting through the house on a winter day? Today I'm sharing our family recipe.

1 quart apple cider
2 cups cranberry juice or ( any fruit juice )
1 navel orange ( or 2-3 clementines ) sliced
4 -5 heaping Tablespoons of  Mulling spice
Small piece of cheese cloth for mulling spices.
Wrap spices in cheese cloth and add it to your cider mix.
Once you've added all of the ingredients to your crock pot set it to the highest setting for the first few hours, then lower the temp and let it simmer for the rest of the day.

 *You can also substitute Cinnamon sticks for mulling spices in a pinch!

Start a batch in the crock pot ( or  large sauce pan ) early in the morning. By noon time you'll have something to sip that'll take the chill off your bones and warm you to your toes!

Perfect for an " at home " family day or any holiday celebration!
