What did the tree say to autumn?
Leaf, me alone.
Haha. Sorry. Moving on.
When you think of Fall what comes to mind?
For me it’s: Pumpkins, blankets, sweaters, orange, pumpkin spice everything, and football to name a few.
Since Arizona doesn’t really have a fall, I’ve been trying to incorporate as much fall-related activities in my day-today life to give the illusion. So far I can cross off the pumpkin patch, making pumpkin pie, making pumpkin pasteries, drinking pumpkin-spice everything, pulling out all my flannels and sweaters, and reading under a cozy blanket with fall-scented candles around me.
And now: Making Apple Cider.
The recipe I used is fairly easy and takes little to no time at all! Plus, it’s cheap. Which is always a good thing. I added some spices and additions to make it my own, so feel free to stretch and make this recipe however you want it to be. It isn’t technically “homeade” apple cider (the homeade recipe would have taken 8 hours and this college student has no time for that), but it is still equally as good!
3 Apples (I used one red and two green)
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
A sprinkle Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 teaspoon Ground allspice
A sprinkle Ground Nutmeg
- Pour the desired amount of apple cider into a pot and heat it over the stove.
2. Cut up the apples and oranges and add them into the mix.
3. Add in the spices.
4. Mix around and let it boil. Taste test it every so often and once it’s to your liking, pour it into a cute mug, add some whip cream, caremal drizzle, and a cinnamon stick, and enjoy!
This is a recipe you definetly want to check out! It tastes great, feels good, and makes your house smell like a fall forrest. What I love about this recipe is that you can bend it to your liking. Add more cinnamon if you’d like, ignore the nutmeg, etc. Everyone likes it differently.
