Spicy Cranberry Warmer Recipe

Spicy Cranberry Warmer Recipe

Meet the Cook: Here in the High Sierras, my husband and I operate a small bed and breakfast inn. I like serving this drink to winter guests as they warm up in front of our stone fireplace - it's a favorite with everyone for its heavenly scent! It's also a standby when we host local groups, who frequently meet at our place. I learned to cook from my mother. I have been at it since I was a girl. My husband and I have six grown children and a total of 11 grandchildren. -Marlene Cartwright, Sierra City, California

"Substituted ground cinnamon and nutmeg for the cinnamon sticks and allspice, and then put those into a coffee filter inside of a tea strainer. It actually worked, too! Very good, my picky little brother even liked it. A bit sweet though, might use less brown suger next time."
