How To Make Spiced Apple Cider

If you've ever been to a Fall Open House at The Farm, you've probably tasted our tried-and-true cider recipe.  Lots of people have asked for it, and we're happy to share it below.  But if you want a convenient, everything-you-need  kit, we've got those made up for you!  How easy could that be?   Just add apple juice and simmer on the stove. 

If you want to make your own, here's what you need to do:
Combine in  a large stockpot:
2 tsp. whole cloves and 2 tsp. whole allspice (in a tea ball or simmer bag)
1/3 cup brown sugar
One gallon of apple juice or cider (no difference according to our taste tests)
2 or 3 cinnamon sticks and 2 or 3 orange slices
Simmer together for a half hour.  Yum. . . .and your house is gonna smell great too!
