It's all about the Apple

 I'd say that the apple is my most favorite food. Red, Gala, Granny Smith to name a few.

Spiced Homemade Apple Cider Recipe
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • 1 apple
  • Cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)
  • 2 tsp whole cloves
  • 1/8 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 quarts apple cider (ideally fresh)

To start, carefully stick the cloves into the apple. Then mix the allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove studded apple and apple cider in a pan. Place it on low heat and bring to a simmer. In about 10 minutes, the apple cider will get imbibe the flavors of the spices. Take the pan off the heat and toss away the apple. You could either strain or spoon the spiced cider into mugs and garnish each mug with a cinnamon stick and slice of orange. You will make around a gallon, which comfortably serves 8.
