Scottish Mulled Cider

The cold weather months bring their own kind of comfort & yumminess with them, don't they? Everything from stews & soups to warm drinks.

If you love cider drinks this mixture will quickly climb to the top of your Favorites List. This is the taste treat of authentic Scottish Mulled Cider
You will need:

~8 c. apple cider
~1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
~1 pinch of ground nutmeg
~8 4-6" cinnamon sticks, + a few extra
~1 ts whole allspice
~1 ts whole cloves, + a few extra
~8 orange wedges, with rind


1) In a saucepan, mix the cider, brown sugar & nutmeg.
2) In the cheesecloth, put in the cinnamon, allspice & 1 ts of the cloves; tie with a string
3) Add the bag of spices to the cider mix & bring to boiling. 
4) Once it boils, reduce the heat, cover & simmer on low for 10-15 minutes.
5) While the mulled cider simmers, stud the orange rinds with 2-4 whole cloves.
6) Once cider has simmered, take out the spice bag & throw it away.
7) Serve mulled cider in mugs with one of the clove-studded oranges in each one; you may also wish to serve with an extra cinnamon stick in each mug.
