Admittedly, I’ve been slacking on my blog posting duties. I’m sorry. With all the deaths and memorial services, about every two weeks since September, I have to admit I haven’t been in the mood. I also haven’t actually gone anywhere exciting or drank anything more than bourbon in the last few weeks.
But it’s autumn, and I usually love autumn. I love the crispness of the air and the crackle of the leaves under my feet. And I love the chance to make mulled cider.
Today, I’m sharing with you my incredibly easy mulled cider recipe. You need a crock pot, and let’s go from there.
Shel’s Mulled Cider
2 quarts apple cider
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp whole cloves
1tsp whole allspice
2 cinnamon sticks
¼ tsp salt
1 dash ground nutmeg
1 ½ oz rum (per mug)
1. With cloves and allspice in a large teaball, cook all ingredients in a crockpot on low for 2-8 hours.
2. Stir occasionally/rarely to dissolve sugar.
Alternatively, you can cook in a pan on the stovetop on low heat 20-30 minutes until simmering.
3. Pour your favorite golden rum into each mug, but do not cook with the rum. A cinnamon stick in each mug is also a nice festive touch.
