Always read the label and make sure you are purchasing pasteurized apple cider. Raw, unpasteurized cider may contain harmful bacteria.

1 gallon naturally sweet apple cider

1 cup brown sugar

4 cinnamon sticks, broken in half

1 tablespoon whole cloves

1 tablespoon whole allspice

1/2 teaspoon mace (optional)

Tie cinnamon, cloves, allspice and mace together in cheesecloth or use a coffee filter tied with string. Combine cider and brown sugar in a large pot. Add spices. Bring mixture to a slow boil. Then turn heat down and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove spice bag from pot. Serve hot cider in mugs. Spiced Apple Cider may be kept warm in a crock-pot (slow cooker) on low setting.
