Mulled Cider

Posted in Recipes by Andrea on August 26, 2009

Obama PumpkinThis is a great warm apple cider to enjoy in the fall when the leaves are changing colors and you’re carving pumpkins.

 

1 gallon apple cider

3-4 sticks cinnamon

5 cardamom pods

10 cloves

15 whole allspice (or 1 tbsp ground allspice)

1-2 large oranges (cut in quarters or eighths, leave peel on)

3-4 red pears (cut up, leave peel on)

 

In a large pot over medium heat, add all of the above ingredients. Let sit on heat for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve warm in mugs. You can take many liberties with this recipe depending on your taste. Remember that the longer you leave the mixture on the heat, the spicier it gets. You can use apple juice to re-fill as you’re getting low. You can also use apple juice and brown sugar (1 liter, 1 tbsp at a time, respectively) instead of cider.
