(Naturally) Gluten Free Vegan Treats: Mulled Apple Cider

There's nothing like coming in from hours of raking on a cold October afternoon to a steaming mug of mulled cider. I worked off of this recipe but made a few changes. Cider's sweet enough without adding brown sugar, if you ask me.

Mulled Apple Cider

8 cups fresh, unfiltered apple cider
1 orange with peel, quartered
15 cloves
4 3-inch sticks of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
7 pods of cardamom
3 star anise

Bring all ingredients to a low boil in a large saucepan. Cover and simmer gently for 20-30 minutes. Pour hot cider through a fine mesh strainer into mugs or a heat proof pitcher.

Makes 8 cups.

(See those warm cozy mittens? I macht them.)
