We’ve been adding mulling spices to plain apple juice for as long as I can remember.  I whipped up a batch today so the kids can enjoy s cup {or two} today after school.  This recipe for apple cider mulling spice is perfect for the holidays!


5 {3-inch} cinnamon sticks
1 tablespoon allspice berries
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 whole nutmeg
2 tablespoons fresh orange rind

64 oz apple cider {or juice}


Combine all ingredients in a piece cheesecloth or muslin, gather the edges and tie with baker’s twine*.  Pour apple cider {or juice} in a crock pot, add spice sack and cook on low for several hours before serving. Remove  spices, and serve warm. Your house will smell heavenly.

Baker’s Twine* is available on Amazon.com

    Can the spice sack be reused for a second batch when done? I’m assuming it will still have some kick to it?

    • You would totally have to dry it out first. I have never tried drying it out before, so I would suggest untying the cheese cloth and spreading the spices out to dry. I’m not sure if the orange peel would make it, but you would try.

  2. and if you don’t have any juice or cider, just simmering those goodies in a pan of water makes the house smell wonderful. Thanks for all your great posts Mavis ~ I just discovered your blog a couple weeks ago and have been coming back again and again. I wish I was your neighbor and could do some bartering with ya~!

  3. I bet it would be awesome in some hard apple cider as well. Thanks for the idea. BTW I’ve been a lurker of your page for quite a while now. I love it!
