Mitford Spiced Apple Cider

Jana here with a wonderful warm, winter recipe!  My mother-in-law passed this recipe to me, and she got it from her Jan Karon Mitford Cookbook.  This is a cider that is very easy to make, but tastes like you spent a lot of time on it!  Kids and adults alike will love it, and it is a great addition to any winter gathering!  You can make it in your slow cooker, and leave it there to stay warm.  This makes it easy for guests to be served a warm cup of cider at any point!

Mitford Spiced Apple Cider

2 teaspoons whole cloves
2 teaspoons whole allspice
6 cinnamon sticks
1 gallon apple cider
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1. Tie cloves, allspice, and cinnamon sticks in a cheesecloth bag.

2. Pour cider into a large slow cooker, and add brown sugar, salt, nutmeg, and spice bag.

3. Heat on high for one hour, and then turn to warm.
