Mulling Spices

This combination of spices conjures up images and warm fuzzy feelings of past fall seasons! This combination can be used with apple cider, pear cider or even wine! A spice ball is recommended to hold the spices in the liquid, but if you don't have one, you can use some cheesecloth and a food safe string. A hit for any fall gathering!
