With my first sip of this brisk cider, I know autumn has arrived. It makes the kitchen smell so festive that I serve it during the holidays, too. Transfer it to a slow cooker set on low to keep it warm until the last party guest leaves. —Tina Butler, Royse City, Texas

  • 2-1/2 quarts apple cider or juice
  • 1/2 cup Red Hots
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cinnamon sticks (3 inches)
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole cloves


  1. In a large saucepan, combine cider, Red Hots and nutmeg. Place cinnamon sticks and cloves on a double thickness of cheesecloth. Gather up corners of cloth to enclose seasonings; tie securely with string. Add to Dutch oven.
  2. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to loosen candies. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 10-15 minutes or until flavors are blended. Discard spice bag.
