Mulled Grape Cider Recipe

I came up with this recipe one year when I attempted to make grape jelly and ended up with 30 jars of delicious grape syrup instead. I then simmered the syrup with spices to make this beverage. —Sharon Harmon, Orange, Massachusetts

"Besides the pain of picking grapes, this was amazingly delicious and well worth the work. My whole family loved it, great for a chilly fall night. Next time I might cut the spices in half."
