    Hot Spiced Cider

    For a non-alcoholic version, use a good cloudy apple juice instead of cider, omit the sugar - and leave out the rum.

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 8


    • 1.5 litres cider
    • 1 orange, zest pared into strips
    • 4 small cinnamon sticks, halved
    • 4 cloves
    • ¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
    • 2 tbsp brown sugar
    • 50ml rum


    1. Pour the cider into a large pan and add the other ingredients, except the rum. Heat gently on a low heat for 20 minutes; do not allow the mixture to boil as this will burn off the alcohol.
    2. Strain the warm cider into glasses and add the rum, if using. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and a strip of orange zest from the pan.
