A Little Cuisine... The best apple cider ever!

So, since it is Halloween, and since Thanksgiving is around the corner, I am here to share with you the BEST cider recipe.  EVER!  It has a tangy zip to it due to all the citrus juices involved.  Believe me you will impress.  Sometimes I hand this out in little throwaway cups on "All Hallow's Eve" to the adults in my neighborhood accompanying their darling trick-or-treaters.  You can even garnish it up with a cinnamon stick or an orange slice.  It makes a great accompaniment on Thanksgiving as well.  No matter when you make it, the whole house will smell heavenly

Corinne's Favorite Apple Cider... (This recipe is HUGE - I usually half it and it still makes more than you could ever drink)
2 cups sugar
5 cups water
12 cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
4 allspice berries (or about 1/4 tsp. ground allspice)
1 T. fresh or crystallized ginger
1/2 - 1 gallon apple cider
1/2 gallon orange juice
1 cup lemon juice

Simmer sugar and spices with water for 10 minutes or so and then take out spices.  Add juices and heat.  Can also stick in a crock pot to keep warm for hours.
