Low-carb Mulled Apple Cider #EatWellAmerica #Thanksgiving #GardenCuizine

Mulled Apple Cider

Yields 7 cups

4 cups Apple Cider (read ingredient label: look for 100% apple juice, no added sugar!)

3 cups water
2, 4-inch cinnamon sticks
2 whole cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
optional: float washed small orange studded with a few cloves in the pot for added flavor and fun; or 3 thin orange slices

Putting it all together
Combine all ingredients directly in a crock pot or stock pot. Heat to almost boiling. Reduce heat and simmer until flavors blend and your guest arrive. Serve warm. Enjoy!

Another recipe just in time for National Diabetes Month. We served this at Inspira Health Network's Diabetic Cooking Class.
