Orange Spiced Cider

Orange juice adds a bit of sweetness to this wonderful hot beverage, and red-hot candies are a fun substitute for traditional cinnamon sticks.

4 cups unsweetened apple juice
1 can (12 ounces) orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon red-hot candies
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon whole cloves
fresh orange slices and cinnamon sticks, optional


In a 3-quart slow cooker, combine the first five ingredients. Place cloves in a double thickness of cheesecloth; bring up corners of cloth and tie with kitchen spring to form a bag. Add bag to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 2 to 3 hours or until heated through. Before serving, discarding spice bag and stir cider. Garnish with orange slices and cinnamon sticks if desired.
