The original recipe calls for 7 whole allspice but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. I substituted the equivalent amount of ground allspice without any negative consequences. I simply use a tea towel when straining the cider so that the spice is removed (Note: It will stain your tea towel, so don’t use an heirloom towel when doing this!).
Remove from heat and allow to stand for 12 hours.
Strain and serve hot.
