November 7, 2008, Newsletter Issue #266: Hot spiced apple cider

Tip of the Week

Almost as easy as the “mix“. Needed:

1 quart sweet apple cider
8 whole cloves
1 stick cinnamon
8 whole allspice
1/4 tsp. honey
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
dash of salt

Using a 3-quart pan, pour in cider, add spices, honey, sugar and salt. Cover tightly and slowly heat over low temp. to simmering point; takes about 1/2 hour. Remove from heat and strain. Serve hot. Place 1 cinnamon stick in each cup for nice presentation :o)
Makes approx. 5, 6-oz servings
Note: this can be made days in advance: let chill, store in glass container in refrigerator; heat before serving. Note: if entertaining, use your crock-pot as a “hot“ punch bowl for this, but heat cider before pouring into warmed pot.
