Serve Apple Cider in an Apple

Happy Fall! Today the weather in Boulder, CO is absolutely delightful. A sunny 65 F so I spent my break between students lounging at the pool and reading a book. Rough.

I bought some yummy mulled apple cider from Sunflower Market today and saw on Better Homes a Gardens this great way to serve apple cider to guests, in carved out apples. I guess I need to have an autumn party.

Hot Spiced Cider
  • 8 cups apple cider or apple juice
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 inches stick cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon whole allspice
  • 1 teaspoon whole cloves
  • Small apple slices
1. In a saucepan combine cider and brown sugar. For spice bag, tie cinnamon, allspice, and cloves in double layer of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth. Add the spice bag to the cider mixture.
2. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the spice bag; discard. Serve cider in mugs with small apple slices, if desired. Makes 8 (about 8-ounce) servings.

    Ha! It was 70 degrees in the OC today and I wore jeans, a long sleeve and uggs. Hysterical.
