Tips to Prevent Getting an Infectious Disease While on Vacation

Dr. Brent W. Laartz thought he was in for the ride of his lifetime when he set out on a horseback riding excursion in Costa Rica.

Orange Cranberry Mulled Cider (a la Slow Cooker)


Every year starting in late October I make this apple cider. It’s so very simple and effortless, but I still receive numerous compliments and requests for the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups of apple cider
  • 5 cups of cranberry juice
  • 4 oranges, sliced and sectioned
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar to taste
  • 2 t whole allspice (whole preferred but ground is ok)
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 t cloves, whole

Directions

  1. Place all of the spices in a coffee filter and tie with a string (make sure this is not a colored string).
  2. Stir briefly.
  3. Add the filter and cook on low for 3-4 hours.
  4. Add the oranges and cook on low for an additional 1-2 hours.
  5. Turn the slow cooker to warm, remove the filter, stir, and add additional sugar, if needed.
  6. Serve warm, and go a-wassailing (without the alcohol!).
