"This is warming and spicy! The hot peppers add a nice kick: if you want a little more heat and flavor, increase the spice blend to 1 tablespoon."
1 bottle red wine
2 2-inch pieces of orange peel
½ Tbsp Pickling Starter
Heat wine, orange peel, and spices over low or in the 'keep warm' setting of a crock pot until heated through.
Serve in mugs, garnish with cinnamon sticks if desired.
