When cider season is here - you jump on it and make Spiced Cider! Because fall.
1 gallon Litehouse Gala Apple Cider
1 tablespoon whole allspice
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
4 cloves whole cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
Combine cider, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon sticks in a large pot. Scrape in seeds from vanilla bean and add bean. Bring spiced cider just to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook just below a simmer until flavors meld, about 1 hour.
Strain cider through a sieve into another pot or heatproof punch bowl; discard solids in sieve. Ladle hot spiced cider into cups.
