Holiday Mulled Cider: A Drinkable Air Freshener
What would you recommend as a safe winter air freshener? –Pat B, WI
I like to use this spicy air freshener during the holiday season. It makes our home smell welcoming, and the best part of all is that you have mulled cider ready on the stove to offer friends and family at a momentís notice. Here’s my favorite recipe for hot mulled cider.
- 2 sticks cinnamon
- 5 or 6 whole cloves
- 8 cups organic apple cider, or as needed
Choose a large non-aluminum pan (apples are acidic and can leach aluminum from the pot), and add the spices and organic apple cider. Simmer over low heat for 3-4 hours, adding more cider as it evaporates. When you are ready to drink it, strain out the herbs, and serve it in cups and mugs.
