6 cups apple cider
1/4 cup real maple syrup
2 cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
1 orange peel, cut into strips
1 lemon peel, cut into strips
6 whole allspice berries

Pour the apple cider and maple syrup into a saucepan. Place the cinnamon sticks, allspice berries, orange peel and lemon peel in the center of a washed square of cheesecloth, fold up the sides of the cheesecloth to enclose the bundle, then tie it up with kitchen string. Drop the spice bundle into the cider mixture.

Place saucepan over heat for 10 min. or until the cider is very hot but not boiling. Remove the cider from the heat. Discard the spice bundle. Ladle the cider into mugs, adding a fresh cinnamon stick to each serving, if desired. MAKES 6 SERVINGS
