‘Tis the season for mulling spice
Tonight I made up a batch of my favorite mulling spice mix.
Poured some cider into the crockpot with a splash of orange juice, and put a couple of teaspoonsfull of the spices into a muslin bag and let it stew happily on low for a few hours. Even better with a splash of brandy or port tossed in at the end (before it can all cook off)…
I get my spices from Mountain Rose Herbs. I highly recommend them for spices, essential oils, tea blends–pretty much anything they sell.
Of course, you can also mull cider with a few cloves and cinnamon sticks tossed in, maybe a few orange slices…almost as good!
