  • 16 cups pure apple juice or fresh apple cider
  • 4 (2-inch) cinnamon sticks
  • 6 fresh or dehydrated orange, lemon, apple, or pear slices
  • Add cranberries if desired
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 2 star anise
  • 6 cardamom pods
  • dozen fennel seeds
  • just a pinch of nutmeg
  • dozen tellicherry peppercorn
  • tablespoon of ginger root

Directions

dried-orange-slices-at-wfs-and-air-plant-fbCombine all the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat for at least 20 minutes.  The juice, (wine or cider) needs time to absorb all of the flavours from these lovely ingredients.

Don’t let it heat up so much that it boils. You’ll know when it’s ready because your kitchen will smell so good!

You can wrap the ingredients in a cheese cloth bag too,  which makes for easier clean up, and less ‘floaties’ in the cup!

Pour into mugs, garnish with a sprig of mint if desired.

Time: 20 min – Prep: 10 min – Yield: 12 + servings  Level: Easy
