Recipe: Mulled Cider

Mulled cider is one of my favourite festive drinks and this year it seems to be the in thing. I've seen it on sale in quite a few places.

The best recipe I have found comes from The National Collection of Cider & Perry, at Middle Farm in East Sussex. Here it is:

Mulled Cider

4 pints of still, dry farmhouse cider
3 apples - washed, cored and sliced
2 oranges, washed and sliced
Juice and zest of 1 unwaxed lemon
2 tsp ground mixed spice
8 whole cloves
2 cinnamon quills snapped in half
6 tbsp light soft brown sugar

Put all the ingredients into a pan, cover and heat gently for a minimum of 1 hour. Do not boil.
