Great For Cold Nights
I love this stuff!
Perfect for cold nights.
It tastes so great...and smells wonderful!
And better yet...its actually very good for you.
Heres a few benefits:
Cranberries-Heart healthy...Improves circulatory system...Reduces the risk of kidney stones
Lemons-Effective in curing digestive problems...Acts as a diuretic...Hasten wound healing
Oranges-High amount of anti-oxidant...Provides protection against viral infections...Lowers high blood pressure
Cloves-Good source of fiber...Reduces inflammatory symptoms...Acts as a mild anaesthectic
Traditionally...cider is made from pressing apples...but the taste and smell of this drink remind me of cider from when I was little...so thats why I named it a cider...instead of just a drink.

Gather your ingredients...
You will also need: A large pot...Wooden spoon...Strainer...Pitcher
Add 3 1/2 quarts water (14 cups) to your pot and then add your cranberries. Bring it to a boil.
Once it starts boiling...reduce heat and simmer for 30 mins.
While youre waiting...go ahead and juice 1 lemon and 1 orange. Set aside.
Slice the other lemon and orange up. Set aside.
Once your 30 mins is up...turn your heat setting to the lowest level.
Now add your 2 cups sugar...your lemon/orange juice...your lemon/orange slices...and your 15 cloves.
Stir well. Now just cover your pot and leave it alone for 1 hour.
After an hour...
Optional-Remove a few (or all) orange slices (or lemon) and set aside for garnishing.
Place a strainer over your pitcher. Now very carefully ladel fruits and juice into the strainer.
Drain completely...discard whats left in the strainer.
