I have been craving warm apple cider since late fall hit! I have seen recipes with cranberry juice that look good but usually include extra brown sugar. What I want is a cranberry infused cider. Problem solved!!! Use whole berries!
64 oz apple juice or apple cider
12 oz. bag cranberries
3-4 cinnamon sticks
1-2 T whole cloves
1-2 t ground nutmeg
1/2 ground allspice
1-2 oz. orange liqueur, or zest, or juice
Throw everything in a crock pit for 2-4 hours or in a big pan on the stove for an hour. Don't allow it to boil, though. Strain out berries, cloves, and cinnamon sticks before serving.
