  • 3 1/2  Cups  apple cider
  • piece of ginger
  • cinnamon sticks
  • 2  Teaspoons  whole cloves
  • 2  Teaspoons  allspice
  • 1  Teaspoon  black peppercorns
  • 1/2  Cup  light brown sugar
  • sliced orange

Directions

Pour the apple cider into a slow cooker. Tie the ginger, cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice and black peppercorns into a cheesecloth to make a sachet.

Cinnamon Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Cinnamon Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
