Hot Spiced Apple Cider

Nothing says fall to me, like apple cider...and nothing warms the bones on a crisp day like Hot Spiced Apple Cider.

Here's my version:

3 parts Apple Cider
1 part Mango Juice (Cranberry, Grape, Orange work too)
1 TBS gelatin per serving
Mulling Spice-cinnamon chips, orange rind, whole allspice, whole cloves, cinnamon oil, orange oil
Large pinch of Salt
Sugar/Cream of tartar to taste
Dash of vanilla
A small dollop of coconut oil

This maybe heated in a glass or stainless steel pot on the stove, wood stove or in a slow cooker.

  1. Add the ingredients in order
  2. When the gelatin is completely soaked, turn on heat.
  3. Use low heat with a lid and forget about it for awhile OR
  4. Use high heat and stir slowly, but consistently.
  5. Gelatin is dissolved when coconut oil is completely melted.
  6. Simmer for at least 15 minutes, strain and serve.

  1. Love this! We recently moved to CO from TX, and it's already chilly here. The kids keep asking for apple cider. :o)
