The weather is now chilly, and the leaves have fallen. That means Pumpkin Spice season! Ok, ok, it's not about pumpkin spice this time, but if you're interested in an amazing recipe for Pumpkin Pie cheesecake, then you're in luck, because I have one for you right here in lat year's birthday post.
This is definitely apple season, and I know that some of my family have gone apple picking this year to make delicious pies, jellies and crumbles. Just the thought of freshly-baked apple pie makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and that's a great thing, since the outside is a little worse for wear lately! I'm now back to culinary school and studying my butt off!
Fall and winter, for me, is curling up under a warm blanket on the sofa with a hot drink, good company and a bad movie. So why not make the laziness just a bit more warm and fuzzy with delicious homemade cider that's like sipping on a mug of warm apple pie?
This Apple Pie Cider recipe is incredibly easy to make using any apples you have on hand, and tossing everything together into a slow cooker. Don't have one? No problem, just follow the recipe below and use a regular pot instead, cooking the apples until soft.
What you'll need
5 - 7 apples (a mixture of sour and sweet works best)
1 orange, whole
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 whole clove
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
8 cups (1.8 L)
Squeeze of lemon
1/3 cup brown sugar
Salted caramel sauce
This is a great recipe when you want get all cozy with a hot drink. You could also sieve the mixture and drink it cold as a juice, but I prefer it hot and a bit thick.
