Spiced Apple Cider

 I learned something new last year that I thought I'd share with y'all. Apple juice, apple cider, and spiced apple cider are all different things! Apple cider is what is produced when the apples are mashed and pressed into a liquid. Juice is produced when cider is filtered. Often sugar is also added. Spiced apple cider is just what it sounds like -- cider that has had spices added to it. It can be served hot or cold. "Hard" cider is the one you want to stay away from, as it's alcoholic!

1 gallon natural unsweetened apple juice (or cider)
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Combine all; heat through and serve. I like to use the slowcooker for mine. It's ready after about 3 hours on low.
