hot spiced apple cider

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

I had a busy but great weekend and I wanted to share with you a great recipe for spiced apple cider. It's great to double for a party and store in a carafe or slow cooker to keep warm.


2 quarts of apple cider
1 tsp whole cloves
1 tsp whole allspice
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 cup brown sugar (or less if you don't want it sweet)
dash of salt
8 shots of rum (optional-I prefer Captain Morgan)

Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes...remove spices and add rum if using it.

NOTE: be sure not to simmer more than 30 minutes because the spices will break down and make it difficult to remove.

I am going to make this today and serve it with pumpkin bread...
