Hot Apple Cider


  • 1 gallon apple cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks, each about 2 inches long
  • 8 cloves
  • 8 whole allspice
  • 1 lemon, sliced


  1. Pour the apple cider into a large enough pot.
  2. Put the spices into a tea caddy (eases straining), and place in the cider. Add the lemon slices, too.
  3. Heat the cider; it should become hot, but not simmering. Stir occaisonally. The longer the spices remain, the spicier the cider gets. But if you leave them in for too long (over 30 to 40 minutes) and it could make the cider seem too sweet.
  4. Ladle into mugs.
