Fall -- Apple Cider Recipe!

Look what I picked from my garden just yesterday!
Not bad for the end of October! Fall is here!
And it seems that this time of year is always busy.
School is in full swing.
We are getting ready for the holidays!
(I would have uploaded more pictures but I am having some technical difficulties.)
I would like to share a recipe for Apple Cider.
It is a family favorite this time of year.
It makes the house smell great!
And it warms you up.
Perfect for Halloween night after trick-or-treating.
Hot Apple Cider
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 quarts apple juice
1 t. whole allspice
1-1/2 t. whole cloves
2 sticks cinnamon sticks

Put brown sugar and apple juice in crock pot (if you don't have a crock pot just put it in a pot on your stovetop.) Add spices, if desired wrap whole spices in a cheescloth. Cover and cook on low 2 to 8 hours in crock pot. On stove top bring to a simmer and it will be ready in approx 45 min.

I reuse the dried can just keep adding more juice and brown sugar as needed.

Happy Fall!
