Mulled Cranberry-Apple Cider

It has been below ten degrees in New York for three days running. I am sick of shivering, so I am making some mulled cider to warm myself up!

In a saucepan, combine all the ingredients: 2 cups cranberry juice cocktail (I like the Cranberry Nectar from Santa Cruz Organics:, 2 cups apple cider, a tablespoon and a half organic brown sugar, 2 (3 and 1/2-inch long) strips of orange rind, 4 whole cloves, 2 whole allspice, one whole cinnamon stick (broken in half) and one whole nutmeg.

Whole allspice and whole nutmeg can be hard to find - in a pinch, substitute abt. 1/2 tsp. ground allspice and 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg.

Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Strain through a sieve over a bowl, and discard the solids. Ladle one cup of cider into each of 4 mugs - and serve nice and warm! Each cup is 160 calories
