It wouldn't be Fall without some mulled cider. This is an easy way to make it and forget about it all day. I usually halve this recipe for ten or fewer people. I use a coffee filter (tied with butcher's twine) to hold all the spices.
I made this cider for Christmas Eve service at church and it was the first thing gone. I reduced the sugar to 1 Tsb. and after heating it on the stove, transferred it to a crock pot, taking the orange out, and adding another orange (sliced) and another pinch of nutmeg after transferring it to a crockpot.
