Apple Cider with a Berry Twist
The addition of berries makes this harvest drink extra special. Perfect for Halloween night or any fall evening after a long day of raking leaves. Makes 10 or more (6-ounce) servings



8 cups apple cider or apple juice
1 10-ounce package frozen red raspberries or frozen sliced strawberries
4 inches stick cinnamon
1-1/2 teaspoons whole cloves
Cinnamon sticks (optional)
1 medium apple, cut into quarter-moon slices (optional)

Combine apple cider in large saucepan, toss in raspberries or strawberries, long stick cinnamon, and cloves. Bring to boiling and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain through a sieve lined with 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth.

Pour cider into heat-proof glasses or cups. If desired, garnish each serving with a cinnamon stick and slice of apple.
