Delicious! This has become THE family cider recipe that we serve for the holidays. We've had several friends ask for the recipe. FYI - the last cup is too thick with spices to be served to guests.

I made this for my annual Cookie swap and my guests loved it. I halved the recipe and used my crock pot to keep it warm. I put it on high about an hour before the guests arrived. The bonus was how good the house smelled. I will probably not make it often because it makes a lot of cider- even halved, but it is a must for holiday entertaining.
