Spiced Apple Cider

* 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 (one half) 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. Yield 18 servings

The Frosty Apple

* 1 pint vanilla ice cream
* 1 quart naturally sweet apple cider
* 4-6 scoops vanilla ice cream (optional)
* Freshly ground nutmeg

Let a pint of vanilla ice cream soften at room temperature or microwave for 20 seconds. Put ice cream and cider into a blender or food processor and blend until frothy and well mixed. Stir in nutmeg. Pour into tall glasses and top with a scoop of ice cream, if desired. Sprinkle nutmeg on top. Yield 6 one-cup servings.

I love spiced apple cider - yum! That frosty apple sounds good, darn diet though. I'm hoping to go apple picking this weekend - it's that or the alpine bobsleds - will let the kids decide.
