8 cups (2 L) apple juice – I use either natural or organic – both are made with the entire apple – peel and all and a healthier choice
6-8 whole cinnamon sticks, broken in half – I use 8 – I want a strong flavour
12-16 whole cloves – I use 12
pinch of fresh nutmeg
- Put all of the ingredients in a pot on the stove and simmer until hot. OR heat it all in a crock-pot and let simmer all day. The longer it simmers the stronger the flavours.
- Stir and serve – tip – I don’t use cheesecloth to wrap the spices up in – I just pour the cider through a small sieve when I serve it.
