Hot Mulled Cider

Hot mulled apple cider is a big hit during the cold winter months. I like to make this in a large crock pot and add more apple cider as needed.  It gets better the longer you let it steep so start it the day before you want to serve it.  The spices in this recipe can be replaced with a 1/4th cup of your favorite Mulling Spices.
