Place Mulling Spices in the muslin bag (a large tea ball or cheesecloth also works) and simmer in 1 to 2 cups water for 20 to 30 min. This will reconstitute the spices. Discard the water but keep the spices. Pour the gallon of cider over the spices and warm the mixture. The spices will flavor the cider in about 15 min. Stop here and serve as hot mulled cider. Or place in refrigerator to chill. Once chilled, add extract and orange slices and serve over ice garnished with cinnamon sticks and cherries, if desired.

Serving Suggestions

You can also use a coffee urn to make mulled cider in larger batches for parties. Place the mulling spices in the top of the urn where the coffee would normally go (using 3 Tbsp. per gallon of juice). Pour the juice in the bottom of the urn and let percolate to mull the cider.

"A friend of mine gave me a sample of the Peruvian Chile Lime seasoning and now it is over. The quality is so good that I just had to find you guys online. I will be trying a few new spices. I hope to be happily satisfied by the new flavors as well. There is no better way for a business to grow than with word of mouth about great quality of products and service! Sending you love from Arizona, keep up the good work!"
