Hot apple cider in the fall. What could be better? Even though it’s still sunny up North, the nights are getting cold. It was down to 30º the other night! We think it’s just about time for spiced apple cider. We made up a big pot last night, simmered with fragrant cinnamon that made the whole house smell wonderful.
Here’s our basic recipe, spicing up fresh, local apple cider with warm cinnamon and cloves. Do you drink spiced cider in the fall? What do you add?
Spiced Apple Cider
1 gallon fresh apple cider
10 cinnamon sticks
5 anise pods
3 teaspoons whole cloves
1 cup extra dark rum (optional)
Orange slices for garnish
Pour the cider into a large pot and simmer with the spices for 10-15 minutes. If you want, tie the spices up in cheesecloth for easy removal later – or just let people deal with cloves in their drinks. Add the rum at the end. Garnish with a slice of orange.
