Tangy Hot Apple Cider

4 packets instant apple cider mix
3 tablespoons Tang
3 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
¼ cup raisins
3 cups water

At home Combine the cider mix and Tang in a zipper-lock bag.
In camp In a pot, combine raisins, cloves, and water; heat slowly over a low flame until the water is aromatic and amber-colored (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in the cider mix and Tang. Pour into two large mugs, add a cinnamon stick, and nibble on the raisins (but skip the cloves–they’re not very tasty). Or pour the cider through a strainer to remove the chewy bits. This recipe contains lots of vitamin C, which makes this drink a perfect on-the-trail substitute for morning O.J. Serves 2.
