Cider




Mulled Apple Cider

Ingredients:
• 1 x gallon apple cider
• 3 tbsp Mulling Spices
• 1 x muslin bag
You can also use a mixture of 1/2 apple juice and 1/2 apple cider.

Directions:
There are two ways to mull cider.  The first is just like mulling wine.  Place the mulling spices in the muslin bag and simmer in water for 20-30 minutes.  This will reconstitue the spices.  Discard the water, add the gallon of apple juice or cider (retaining the spices) and warm.  The spices will flavor the juice in about 15 minutes.

You can also use a coffee urn to make mulled cider in larger batches.  Place the mulling spices in the top of the urn where the coffee would normally go.  (3 Tbsp per gallon of juice).  Pour the juice in the bottom of the urn and let perculate to mull the cider.  This is great for parties.


Mulled Wine
Ingredients:
• 1 x bottle red wine
• 1 tbsp Mulling Spices
• 1 x muslin bag

Notes:
Do NOT use your best bottle of red wine for this recipe.  Because you are changing the flavor of the wine, any good, cheap bottle of red wine will do!

Directions:
Place the mulling spices in the muslin bag and simmer in water for 20-30 minutes.  This will reconstitue the spices.  Discard the water, add the bottle of red wine (retaining the spices) and warm.  The spices will flavor the wine in about 15 minutes.  You do not want to boil the mixture, as this will cook out the alcohol.

Yields:  One bottle mulled wine

Spiced Iced Cider
Ingredients:
• 3 tbsp Mulling Spices
• 1 gallon apple cider or apple juice
• 2 x oranges, sliced
• 1/2 tsp natural cherry extract

Directions:
Place mulling spices in a tea ball, cheesecloth or muslin bag. In a pot on the stove, bring cider and spices to a boil for 15-20 minutes. Remove spices, chill, add sliced oranges, extract, and serve with ice.

Notes:
To brew the cider, you can also use a percolator or coffee machine, using mulling spices in place of coffee. Stop here and serve hot with a cinnamon stick for Hot Mulled Cider.
