The Spiced Cider Project

The Spiced Cider Project


"This tasty cider is made with cinnamon sticks and cloves. It is an excellent project for elementary school students; second graders love it. Each child can participate by placing cloves in a slice of orange. The project has a yummy ending, and can be prepared in 30 minutes."

I make something similar to this, but it is way to sweet for adults this way, I cut it with more water and then make it nice and spicey by adding some ground cinnamon and even a little cayenne p...
