The Perfect Hot Spiced Apple Cider

Who doesn't like a warm apple cider on a chilly fall day? It's perfect for when you just want to sit
outside with the beautifully colored leaves and enjoy a good book. There are many shops where you can get spiced cider, and often just warming up some chilled cider from the grocery store will do in a pinch, but really good hot spiced cider takes a little more preparation.


  • Either 1 stick or 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 2 quart jug of apple cider
  • Optional:
    • Whole cloves- 1 tsp
    • 1 Orange peel
    • 2 tbsp Caramel sauce
In a saucepan combine all of the ingredients except the caramel. Slowly bring the cider to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Select a heat resistant pitcher, or a carafe, and place a strainer over the opening. Pour your cider through the strainer and into the pitcher. If you decided to add a little sweetness to your cider with caramel, you should now pour it into the cider and stir vigorously until the caramel is thoroughly mixed. Pour the cider into your favorite mug and enjoy!

While you drink, don't forget to grab your favorite eTreasures book to read while you appreciate the beauty of fall.
