1 (64 fluid ounce) bottle apple cider
3 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon whole allspice
1 teaspoon whole cloves
2 tablespoons brown sugar
In a crock pot/slow cooker, combine apple cider and cinnamon sticks.
Wrap allspice and cloves in a small piece of cheesecloth and tie it up, then add it to the pot.
Stir in brown sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat or until extremely hot.
Reduce heat, and keep on the warm setting for however many hours you need it to be warm.
Taste it and take out the spices if it seems strong enough. People can also add more brown sugar to their taste, depending on how sweet they want it.
Note: You can also use coffee filters tied with string instead of cheesecloth if that’s what you have on hand.
Also, if you don’t have Allspice, you can use this as a substitute:
1/3 tsp ground cloves
1/3 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 tsp of nutmeg
— for replacing the 1 tsp of Allspice.
