"I like to serve this directly from a crock pot where it stays warm for the duration of a party.  Also, we offer Captain Morgan Spiced Rum if guests want to add a small amount to their drinks.  Just don't let them drink too much if they are driving home!"


2 quarts apple cider (check label carefully for no added unwanted ingredients)

1 large orange, unpeeled and quartered

2 tsp. Stevia (add more or use less to taste)

1/2 tsp. whole allspice

1 tsp. whole cloves

1 cinnamon stick

1/4 tsp. salt

1 pinch ground nutmeg


Tie spices and Stevia securely in a piece of cheesecloth.  Add to the apple cider and heat on low for several hours.  Remove cheesecloth and serve hot.
