  • In a microwave-safe 4-cup measuring cup, combine apple cider or juice, honey, and the spice bag. Microcook, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 6 to 9 minutes or until boiling, stirring once.

  • Microcook, uncovered, on 50 percent power (medium) for 10 minutes to blend flavors. Remove the spice bag.

  • Pour into 4 mugs. Float a lemon half-slice on top of each serving, if you like. Makes four 6-ounce servings.

Lemony Spiced Wine:

Prepare Lemony Spiced Cider as directed above, except use only 1-1/2 cups of the apple cider. Add 1/2 cup rose wine after removing the spice bag. Microcook, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 30 to 60 seconds or until heated through.
