I’d love to have apple cider powder mix wrapped in those plastic cone-shaped bags with a couple cinnamon sticks attached as our favors, but I’m having a hard time finding bulk apple cider powder, anyone know of any websites? I’ve searched google in general, amazon.com and samsclub.com, haven’t come up with anything real cost effective. Thanks.

It’s not hot apple cider, but it’s close. This is from Better Homes & Gardens magazine called “Food Gifts”. I think I picked it up at the grocery store or Home Depot.
Apple Pie Spiced Hot Tea Mix (shown packaged in a teapot, but could easily be adapted for any vessel/packaging)
- 1/3 cup crystallized ginger
- 1 tbsp whole allspice
- 1 tbsp whole cloves
- 2 cups crisp dried apple chips* or dried apples
- 12 x 2.5-3″ cinnamon sticks
- 16 white and/or green tea bags
Divide the ginger, allspice, and gloves among 4 tea infusers (or they also suggest using four 7-8″ squares of double thick 100% cotton cheesecloth. Tie closed with clean kitchen string.). Divide apple chips and cinnamon sticks amongst teapots. Cover. Attach 4 tea bags and serving directions to each gift. Makes 4 gift mixes (4 servings per mix).
*Look for apple chips with no added oils or sugar.
Directions for the tea: In a medium sauce pan, combine spice bag, cinnamon sticks, and 4 cups of water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat. Add apple chips and tea bags to spiced water mixture. Let tea steep for 5 minutes. Remove and discard tea bags, spice bags, and cinnamon sticks.

I’ve honestly never heard of apple cider powder. We’ve always bought fresh, but this is a great and unique idea and I hope someone knows bc I would also like to steal for holiday treats. 🙂

I think I’ve bought it at Costco before….. But that was years ago.

Is it called Cider Mullings?
That’s a very creative idea.

I know you can buy packets at Walmart or Bjs. I didn’t think it came in bulk like cocoa does.

It’s sold in packets by Alpine either at the grocery or Costco and prepackaged is the only way to purchase it. However, you can empty the packets into your own packaging if you have the time and inclination.
Mulling spices, etc are completely different.
