I just LOVE cider for this time of year. You can’t get away from not feeling like Christmas is coming while sipping on this spiced cider that also warmed our bellies. Love all the spices here and may even add extra next time. Thank you, ellie, for sharing! Made it for FYC.

A nice variation on our usual cider. I often use star anise but had never used a vanilla bean. Nice addition. I liked the tartness of this. I don't care for added sugar in my hot cider.
