Mulled Apple Cider is a classic cold weather beverage that is perfect for the whole family.
The warm cider is filled with spices and orange slices, and simmered together. Not only is this spiced apple cider beverage delicious, but it makes your whole kitchen smell amazing!
To Make Mulled Apple Cider You Will Need:
- apple cider
- an orange
- cinnamon sticks
- star anise (or ground anise)
- cardamom pods (or ground cardamom)
- allspice berries (or ground allspice)
- Dutch oven or large soup pot
Important: When you purchase your apple cider, make sure that you read the ingredients. There are many varieties of apple cider out there that are filled with preservatives and sugar. There should only be one ingredient in your apple cider: Apples
Note: I include instructions for using ground spices, but the whole are much preferred. Just use the ground if you can not use the whole spices.
