Homemade Mulled Cider Recipe


• 6 cups fresh apple cider
• 1⁄4 cup pure maple syrup (optional)
• 1-1⁄4 cup mulling spices
• Organic cinnamon sticks and freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish (optional)


Pour apple cider into large pan. I tend to think fresh apple cider has just the right sweetness, but if you’d like a little more, add maple syrup and stir well. Toss in mulling spices and gently heat on medium for 20 minutes or so until very hot. Remove from heat and ladle into mugs, adding a cinnamon stick and a scratch or two of freshly grated nutmeg for garnish, if you wish. Serves 6.
