Cindy’s Hot Cranberry-Apple Cider

hot_apple_ciderIt’s here!! Autumn! My favorite time of the year. The summer heat is whisked away by the cooler breezes of Fall; sweaters come out to play, pumpkins sprinkle the countryside, and freshly baked treats begin to appear on every kitchen counter. And don’t forget the cider! I see a big pot of hot cider in my not to distant future!

My friend Cindy Tortomasi shared this cider recipe with me years ago and it has been my go-to when I crave cider’s sweet, golden goodness ever since. The little ‘trick’ of adding cranberry juice makes this cider an especially tasty treat.

Cindy’s Hot Cranberry-Apple Cider

1 ½ quarts Cranberry juice

2 quarts Apple juice

¼ cup Brown sugar

4 Cinnamon sticks

½ t Cloves, whole

Cheesecloth

Wrap the cinnamon and cloves in a small piece of cheesecloth tying it with string to form a pouch.  Pour the apple and cranberry juices in large soup pot, stir in the brown sugar and add the spice bag.

Bring the cider to a boil over medium heat; immediately lower the heat and let the cider simmer for 2 hours.  Remove the spice bag and serve.
