Charlotte's Hot Spiced Cider
We asked our mom to share her hot spiced cider with all of you. She has been making this recipe for as long as we can remember. It conjures up awesome family memories for us; we hope you can create some of your own around it.
It is best to make the cider a day ahead.
1/2 gallon apple cider
1 quart cranberry apple juice
1/2 cup orange juice
Juice of a lemon
8 to 10 whole cloves
4 cinnamon sticks

- Heat all of ingredients in a large pan and stir it until the sugar melts. Refrigerate overnight.
- When ready to serve, reheat and ladle into cups. Avoid getting the cloves and cinnamon sticks into the cups.
