Hot Spiced Cider

I looked online yesterday afternoon for a cider recipe (why yes, I do tend to procrastinate). Found one, realized this morning that it called for allspice, which I don't have . . . Anyway, here's what I ended up doing:

1/2 gallon apple juice (or cider)
1 cinnamon stick, broken
20 whole cloves (give or take)
approx 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg (this wasn't in the original recipe)
(original recipe called for 8 whole allspice, which I didn't have)
1 lemon, sliced
1 orange sliced

Put cloves & nutmeg in a muslin bag, put everything in the crockpot, turn it on high for a little while to make sure it gets hot, then leave it on low until ready to serve.

It was yummy, and apparently everyone liked it, since it's essentially gone LOL.
