Mulled Wine Tips

cait98 | Nov 30, 2011 12:58 PM

I'm going to be mulling some wine this weekend in my crockpot. I've never done it before and am looking for some advice. I have a bunch of whole spices in my cabinet - nutmeg, cardamon, cinnamon sticks, cloves, peppercorns and I have ginger root lying around.

I'm wary of overspicing. I have seen each of the above ingredients in various mulled wine recipies, but usually not ALL of them together. So, which combination is sure to please?

Also, I rarely use whole spices and have no idea what quantites I should be using. I know a little ginger goes a long way, I'll only use a few slices of that, if I use it at all. But nutmeg? Cardamon pods? I'm much less familiar and have no clue how much I need.

I'm going to throw oranges and sugar in there too, of course, I feel confident about that part though.
