Whole Spices Mulling Mix
3 1 oz boxes cinnamon sticks
6 whole nutmegs
1/3 cup chopped dried orange peel
1/3 cup chopped dried lemon peel
1/4 cup whole allspice berries
1/4 cup whole cloves
2 tbs chopped crystallized ginger
Cut doubled layers of cheesecloth into fourteen 5″ squares. Cut fourteen 10″ pieces plain white food safe string. Put cinnamon sticks and nutmegs in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin or a small heavy skillet until broken in small pieces.
In a small bowl, mix with remaining ingredients until well mixed. Tie 3 generous spoonfuls into each cheesecloth square and tie with string. Makes 14 bags.
To mull wine, stir 1/2 cup water and 1/3 cup sugar in 2-quart pan over medium heat until sugar dissolves.
Add 3-1/4 cups wine and the spice bag. Reduce heat to low, cover and heat slowly until mixture is very hot but not boiling, about 20 minutes. Discard spice bag and serve.
To mull cider, add spice bag to 8 cups apple cider in a 3-quart saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 30 to 35 minutes. Discard spice bag and serve.
