Hot apple cider

Friday, October 15, 2010

Last night it got really chilly here...almost cold to me. It made me crave a good hot apple cider so I thought I would repost one of my favorite drink recipes.

What you’ll need:

  • 5 c apple cider
  • ¼ c maple syrup
  • 1 orange peel, sliced thinly
  • 1 lemon peel, sliced thinly
  • 5 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • Square of cheesecloth

In a large pot mix cider and syrup. Place the orange, lemon, cloves and cinnamon in the cheesecloth and tie it closed. Place the spice bundle into the pot of cider and syrup and heat over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Remove the spice bundle and pour the cider into mugs. Serve with additional cinnamon sticks if desired. Makes 5 cups.

Cost:
apple cider - $2.85
maple syrup - $2.12
oranges - $2.25/bag
lemons - $1.99/4
cloves - $1.12
cinnamon sticks - $1.85
Total - $6.30

Oh, that sounds marvelous, Kathy! Now I want some too - all I have is the instant, but that'll have to do till I can make your recipe. Thank you!

Have a great weekend, my friend :-)
