Spiced Apple Cider

An excellent apple harvest is made all the sweeter with a warm mug of home-pressed cider. Not only does it warm a body from the inside out—and given the chilly weather so far this year, that’s definitely a good thing—but it also fills a home with a warm, spicy scent perfect for the holiday season. I hope you enjoy this festive Quinn family favorite as much as we do.

6 cups apple cider
½ teaspoon whole cloves
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 cinnamon sticks

In a saucepan, heat ingredients to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 10 minutes.

Before serving, strain cider mixture to remove cloves and cinnamon, if desired. Serve warm.
