2    Oranges
8    cinnamon sticks (3-in), broken into small pieces
1/4  cup  Whole cloves
1/4  cup  Whole allspice
4    Whole nutmeg, cracked and broken into small pieces
3  drops  Oil of cinnamon
1  quart  Burgandy wine
1  quart  Apple juice

1. Peel rind from oranges in 1/2 inch strips, cutting into white membrane as little as possible. Reserve oranges for later use. Place rind strips, outer side up, on a wire rack on a baking sheet. Bake at 200 degrees, leaving oven door slightly open, 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until rind is dry. Check often. Let cool. Break into small pieces.

2. Combine dried orange rind and remaining ingredients; mix well. Yield: about 1-1/2 cups.

3. To use: Combine 1/3 cup mulled wine spice mix with 1 quart Burgandy and 1 quart apple juice. Heat to boiling; cover, reduce heat and simmer 20 to 30 minutes. Strain spices before serving. For a nonalcoholic beverage, 1/3 cup cup mulled wine spice mix may be combined with 1/2 gallon apple cider. Servings: 1/2 gallon.
