I thought this was delicious. I never change the recipe when I plan on rating it. If you change it, then you shouldn't rate it because you then are not rating the recipe that was written and do a disservice to anyone else wanting to know how it turned out, which was perfect, just the way it was written. Thanks SilentCricket. Sorry for the run-on sentence.
I omitted the lemon juice and added a package of cinnamon red hots to this cider mix. Instead of bringing it to a boil, I warmed in my crockpot on high until well heated, then reduced the heat to low to maintain the heat. The house smelled lovely, and the cider had a great flavor.
Very good in October, when the winds start to blow. Definitely better without the sugar and an extra cinnamon stick. Add a few extra cloves and keep a pot simmering all morning for a nice smell all day.
