I feel like this is the perfect weekend to make homemade apple cider. It’s basically Fall perfection ~ Fall in a mug actually.
So what could possibly be cozier than a steaming mug of homemade apple cider? How about a giant pot of simmering apple, orange, and warming spices?! This my friends is the perfect treat to make on a blustery Autumn Saturday like today!
Really, this is so easy and one of my favorite Fall recipes. You only need a few apples and water plus some pumpkin pie spice and lots of cinnamon. For added sweetness I added maple syrup and local honey – yum! If you’d like, go ahead and put all the ingredients in a crock pot or just simmer away on the stove all day.
So what’s on your agenda for today? Shopping perhaps? Well don’t forget to pick up a few apples! I used honeycrisp and granny smith but use whatever looks good at the market.
So for this Autumn you really need to try homemade apple cider. It’s fall in a mug really and don’t forget to serve it with apple slices and cinnamon. It’s also tasty with Spicy Ginger Cake and Pumpkin Pecan Coffee Cake!
