It's a crisp Autumn day here in Maine. The sun is shining, the wind is blowing and the leaves are falling. It feels like a perfect morning for a warm mug of spiced cider.
For ease I like to make ours in the coffee pot and the pour it into a carafe. This way family members of all ages can help themselves with out the worry of using a ladle.
Hot Spiced Cider
1/8 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon whole allspice
1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 pinch ground nutmeg
1 small orange, quartered with peel
It's been a year since we've brewed this and I forgot that last year I used the mesh brew basket filter instead of the paper filters. If you brew yours in the coffee pot like I do I HIGHLY RECOMMEND using the mesh filter instead of the paper filter. It takes FOREVER with the paper filter!
Waiting for the first cup of the season.
* This year we pressed our own cider!
