Hot mulled cider is a must-have at all our fall and winter shindigs. It’s probably a holdover from when we lived in New England and the frigid winters necessitated lots of hot beverages.
1 gallon fresh apple cider or unfiltered apple juice
1 medium orange
1 (1 1/2-inch) piece fresh ginger
5 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
Orange slices, for serving (optional)
* Pour the cider or juice into a 5-quart or larger slow cooker.
* Cut the orange into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Cut the ginger into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Add both to the slow cooker.
* Add the cinnamon sticks. Add the cloves and optional spices. To make it easier to serve, place the cloves and spices in a tea ball first, or place in a double layer of cheesecloth or paper coffee filter, gather it up into a sachet, and tie closed with kitchen twine.
* Cover the slow cooker and cook until the flavors meld, 4 hours on LOW. Keep warm and serve in mugs garnished with additional orange slices if desired.
