      Good with the thin slice of lemon on top. I would try this with real whipped cream because I never thought of whipped cream and apple cider together. The spray canned stuff I bought is not a taste I care for, so I wont even try that on this. I liked the citrus taste in this cider but I did find it a bit strong with the amount of peel so I would suggest cutting it down by half. I also covered the pot on a much lower temperature and simmered lightly for those ten minutes as to not lose the drink as steam. I used real Canadian 100% maple syrup and powdered allspice in a slightly lesser amount as I didn't have the berries. Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens Round 01/10.

      This was one recipe that I knew we would really enjoy. Went to a local orchardabout 15 miles away, that actually picks the apple off the trees, and can make you the actual apple cider right in front of you. Enough of that .. This was absolutely GRRREAT !! Made recipe as posted, and would definately recommend this to anyone seeing that apples at least here are in season. Plan on repeating this later this week. Made for Recipe Swap #45.

      I prepared 1/3 of this recipe which made enough hot cider to take on my x-country ski trip today. I really enjoyed it on my lunch break. When I made this I didn't bother with tying the ingredients up in cheesecloth. Instead I used a sieve while pouring it into my thermos. Made for the Comfort Cafe- Snow Queen Round 01/10
