{via inn at buck hollow}

hot maple apple cider
  • 6 cups apple cider 
  • ¼ cup maple syrup 
  • 1 orange peel cut into strips 
  • 1 lemon peel cut into strips 
  • 2 cinnamon sticks 
  • spice bag & string 
  • 6 whole cloves 
  • 6 whole allspice berries 

 Pour cider and syrup into large pot. Place spices and peels in center of a spice bag and tie up with a piece of string. Drop spice bundle into liquid and heat over moderate flame for about 10 minutes. Remove spice bag and discard. Ladle maple cider into mugs and serve warm. 

The smell wafting through the house while the cider is simmering is simply heaven. Serve the hot spiced cider in mugs. For a nice touch, add a whole cinnamon stick to each mug for stirring, float thin slice of lemon or orange on top.
