Mulled cider is a delicious treat for cold winter days.
Rinse the cheesecloth and squeeze out the excess water. Wrap the allspice berries and cinnamon sticks in the cheesecloth, then tie with string and place in the crock pot. Stick the whole cloves into the orange in a random pattern and quarter the orange. Place the pieces in the crock pot. Cover and cook on high for 3 1/2 hours. Once mulled, the cider may be reduced to a low setting for up to 3 more hours.
