Hot Apple Cider.

As the cold winter months approach, hot apple cider sounds better and better. Of course you don't have to stick with the usual can try different kinds. I have saskatoon berry cider and cranberry/raspberry cider. definitely helps keep warm these bones. :)



* 1 1/2 gallons Apple Cider
* 2 whole cinnamon sticks
* 5 cloves
* 1 large orange, sliced thin with peel left on
* 1/2 lemon, sliced thin with peel left on
* 1/2 cup sugar


In large pot, combine cider, cinnamon sticks, cloves, orange and lemon slices, and sugar to taste. Serve hot.

Maybe this is a silly question, but 5 cloves of what? DH and I had some delicious hot apple cider at Bob Evans last night, and now we're itching to make some homemade. :)

Ooohh... *hand to forehead* I just answered my own question (don't you just love those lightbulb moments?). Cloves, as in those spice buds. So *that's* what gives apple cider that spiced flavor... Hmm...

Sorry for wasting comment space. lol Thanks for the recipe!
