Author: Canadian Living

Write the cider recipe on a card, saying that the mix works equally well with cranberry juice or red wine.

  • Portion size 4 servings


  • 8 slices (1 inch/3mm thick) gingerroot
  • 6 strips (1 inch/25 mm wide) orange rind
  • 6 strips (1 inch/25 mm wide) lemon rind
  • 1/4 cup whole cloves
  • 2 tablespoons whole allspice
  • 12 cinnamon sticks (3 inches/8 cm long) smashed


Arrange ginger and lemon and orange rind on rack; let stand until dry and brittle, about 24 hours. Break into 1/4-inch (5 mm) pieces into bowl. Add cloves, allspice and cinnamon; stir to combine.

Scoop one-quarter of the mix onto centre of 4-inch (10 cm) square double thickness cheesecloth; bring ends up and tie with string. Repeat with remaining mix.
