Mom's Hot Cider

I make this, strain out the spices and then put it back into the original bottle and store in the fridge. SO good on a cold winter night!!!

1/2 gallon apple juice or cider

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons whole allspice

1 1/2 teaspoons whole cloves

3 cinnamon sticks

Mix together and boil for 10 minutes. Strain. Serve with cherries and orange slices. Can be refrigerated for future use.
