I made these recipe cards, creating a template for them on my computer using Corel and I added in a new image that I drew for the season. I love hot apple cider and I always make some around Christmas and it’s a tradition for me to make some for the boys and I, the day we bring home the Christmas tree and decorate it. It’s a simple recipe, but OH SO DELICIOUS!
8 cups apple juice no sugar added preferably pressed, or apple cider
2 – 4 tbs brown sugar (depending on how sweet you like it) I go with 2!
3 sticks of cinnamon
4 or 5 cloves
1 thin slice of ginger
1 teaspoon allspice
pinch of nutmeg
I bundle all of the spices (except cinnamon sticks) in a natural cotton mini kitchen bag or you could use a tea infuser. In a large pot, add the spice bundle and cinnamon sticks to the apple juice and sugar, stir and bring to a simmerl. Reduce heat to low and simmer with lid on for 10 -15 minutes. When your house fills with the aroma of apples and spices you know it’s ready to drink! Oh, and if you care for a throat warming alcoholic beverage, just add 1 cup of rum to the mix after you take it off the heat!
Recipe cards and a little jar of your premixed spices along with an apple cider recipe would make a sweet little hostess gift for someone over the Holidays!
