Nothing says fall like Hot Mulled Apple Cider. The warmth of the mulling spices combined with local fresh apple cider is a delicious beverage to serve at a fall block party or holiday open house.  The spices fill your home with the most amazing aroma that sets the festive mood.  I want mulled cider on my stove from now until spring!

Ingredients

  • 1 gallon fresh cider or organic unfiltered apple juice
  • 1 medium orange - cut into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 1 1 1/2-inch piece peeled fresh ginger, cut into 1/4 in cubes
  • 4 3-inch cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • 2 whole star anise pods
  • Orange slices - for serving (optional)

Instructions

  • Pour the cider into a 5-quart or larger stock pot or larger slow cooker.
  • Add the orange, ginger, and cinnamon to the pot.
  • Place cloves and star anise pods in a double layer of cheesecloth (or in a pinch a coffee filter will work), gather it up and tie closed with kitchen twine or a twist tie.
  • Cover the pot or slow cooker and cook until the flavors come together. For the stove top version cook for about 45 minutes to an hour. In a slow cooker, you'll want to heat for 2 - 4 hours on LOW.
  • Serve immediately or keep warm. Serve in coffee mugs

Notes

For the adults in the group, you can always serve a little good quality rum on the side.
Tips:
  • Buy fresh apple cider or organic unfiltered apple juice for the best flavor.
  • Cider can be kept tightly sealed in a glass jar for about a week (assuming the original cider would still be good). Just make sure to remove all the spices prior to refrigerating. Discard mulled cider by the cider expiration date.
