A breakaway from the traditional apple or cranberry mulled cider, this recipe brings together sweet pears, the anise-like flavor of fennel seed, and the warm flavor of vanilla.

Whole fennel seed has a mild licorice flavor. Its woodsy pungency and anise-like sweetness can be added to savory or sweet dishes.

chopped
Dried orange peels have a sharp citrus bite. Made entirely from the peel of the fruit, they tend toward bitterness, and as such these dried pieces aren't meant for ready-made snacking.
