I love hot spiced Cider.I love sitting around on cool nights drinking it. Being from New England this is a drink I love to make with the fresh apple Cider from the local apple orchard.
Making the mulling spice bags for friends and family is a nice touch too.

How to Make Mulled Cider or Mulled Wine spice packs & recipes

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut 14 square of cheese cloth in to 5 inch squares
  2. Put cinnamon sticks and nutmeg in a plastic bag. Smash and break these up with what ever tool you have. A bottom of a pan works as well. break in to small pieces.
  3. pour smashed pieces in to a bowl.stir in orange peel lemon peel,allspice,cloves,and ginger
  4. Put about 2 tablespoons of spice in to the center of each cheese cloth square, Gather corners of square and tie a string around it to secure.
  5. You can give these out at Christmas as gifts by securing to a gift with the cider recipe,or just keep them for yourself. I cut the recipe for spice in half if they are for myself.
  6. Mulled cider- place spice bag and Cider in to a slow cooker. start on high,and cook for 1 hour,and reduce to low. to keep it warm for guests. You can keep on low and leave it for hours. The longer the spice bag is in the stronger the spice flavor.
  7. mulled wine- Place sugar and water in to sauce pan. stir until it dissolves. Add wine and spice bag.heat on low heat until small bubbles appear around the edge of the pan.Do not boil.
  8. discard spice bag and serve. You may keep it warm in a crock pot on low heat.
