What Can I Bring?
Perfect for: Halloween parties, holiday gatherings, breakfasts and brunches.
Make and take: Mix ingredients in a jug for easy transport, and then pour into a pot to heat upon arrival.
Hands on time: 5 minutes Total time: 1 hour Serves: 16
2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
1 gallon apple cider
2 to 3 cinnamon sticks
8 whole cloves
2 to 3 large chunks crystallized ginger
In a blender or food processor, puree the raspberries. Transfer to a large slow cooker, crock pot or stock pot. Pour in as much of the apple cider as the pot can hold, stir, then add cinnamon sticks, cloves and crystallized ginger. Heat on medium-low until cider is steamy and fragrant.
Tip: For even easier preparation, substitute 2 to 3 cups of cranberry-raspberry juice for the pureed berries.
Tart raspberries temper the sweetness of apple cider in this cool-weather party beverage.
