It's really simple (you can see this is a theme among my favorites!)...

Spice Apple Cider

  • Juice from 12 organic gala apples (or organic, not-from-concentrate apple juice) 
  • 1 tsp of allspice 
  • 1/2 tsp clove 
  • 1 cinnamon stick 
  • 2 slices of organic orange 
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla 
 ...main ingredients!

Combine ingredients in a medium-sized pot. I put the allspice and clove into a cheesecloth pouch or tea filter. Bring to a boil. Let simmer for about 20 mins. 

 ...simmer! simmer!

Serve with a cinnamon stick and your favorite mug! If you don't have to drive anywhere, why not add a little rum?

Enjoy!
