  • This is REALLY good. I didn't have pineapple juice, so I cut up a lemon and let it simmer with the other ingredients instead, and it turned out fine. (I still added the lemon juice listed in the recipe too.) Enjoy!

    In large saucepan, heat cider and one cinnamon stick to boiling, reduce heat. Cover and simmer 5 minutes. Uncover, stir in remaining ingredients except cinnamon sticks. Simmer 5 minutes longer. Serve in punch bowl (or just out of the saucepan, like I did). Use cinnamon sticks as individual stirrers if desired. Makes 16 1/2 cup servings.
