Witches' Brew

Yield about 2 quarts


  • 2 quarts apple cider
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 whole cloves
  • 2 (3-inch) sticks cinnamon

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a Dutch oven. Cook over medium- high heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve sugar.

  2. Place cloves and cinnamon on cheesecloth. Bring edges of cheesecloth together at top and tie securely to form a small bag. Drop spice bag into simmering cider mixture; continue to simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove spice bag; pour cider into a heat-proof punch bowl.
