The holidays are fast approaching, and it’s time to start collecting ideas for our festive get-togethers!
When you’ve got a crowd, and the weather is cold, there’s just nothing better than a crockpot full of hot mulled apple tea. Give everybody a cinnamon stick to stir with, and you’ll be able to hear the sighs of contentment all over the house.
1/2 gallon apple cider
1/2 gallon strong tea
One 5-ounce jar Texas Apple Jalapeno Pepper Jelly
One 2-ounce jar Texas Mandarin Orange Habanero Pepper Jelly
1 sliced lemon
1 sliced orange
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon cloves

Put everything in your crockpot, turn it on “low,” and let it simmer for about three hours. Give everyone a cinnamon stick to stir with.
Texas Pepper Jelly’s Hot Mulled Apple Tea is even better with doughnuts.
