Quick Apple Spiced Cider

Quick Apple Spiced Cider

The leaves are beginning to turn the beautiful colors of fall and a nip is in the air. Sounds like a perfect time to have the warm aroma of apple cider cooking on your stove. I love to have a pot on the back burner when my kids come home from a chilly soccer game or my husband walks in from a long days work. There is just something so warm and cozy about walking into a house filled with the sent of fall.


  • 1, 1 quart jug apple juice
  • 1 small orange or mandarine orange, slice in half
  • 10 cloves
  • 1 star anise
  • 6 Allspice berries
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (add more if you like)


  1. Pour juice into a medium sauce pot.
  2. Push the cloves into the orange and put into the juice.
  3. Add the star anise, Allspice, cinnamon sticks and ginger.
  4. Bring to a simmer over high heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes.

For a festive touch I serve mine with a cinnamon stick in each mug.
If you don’t have an orange you can omit it.

I like to put all the spices in a tea sachet and have them ready to just pot in the pot with the juice when ever I need it.
