Mulled Cranberry-Apple Cider Recipe
Becky Luigart-Stayner

A swivel-bladed vegetable peeler works well for removing the orange peel. Be sure to remove only the colored part of the peel - which contains the flavorful oils - and no more; the white pith is bitter.

8 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)

4 cups cranberry juice cocktail
4 cups apple cider or apple juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
5 (3 x 1-inch) strips orange rind
8 whole cloves
4 whole allspice
2 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks, halved
1 whole nutmeg


Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve, and discard solids. Serve cider warm.
