You know what hits the spot on a cold night? A nice, hot mug of spiced cider while you sit by the fire. And this time of year, you can get wonderful, fresh apple cider pretty much anywhere you go- so here is a no fuss way to mull your cider and keep it hot so you can enjoy it at your leisure. (If you have leftovers, just refrigerate them and microwave them for a minute or so- it’s like instant mulled cider!) This recipe DOES leave the ground spices in the bottom of the pot. If it bothers you, just make a bouquet garni by tying the spices in a coffee filter and throw it in. Once you are ready to serve the cider, just discard the spice packet.
- ½ gallon apple cider
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground allspice
- Put all ingredients in a crock pot and warm on high setting until the cider is steaming- about one hour. Then turn down to "warm" and serve directly from the crock pot.
