Apple Week: Apple Cider


It's the final day of Apple Week and this last recipe is especially apt for the wintry months ahead. It'll cozily fill your kitchen with the scent of cloves, citrus and cinnamon as it simmers. This series has been such fun - I really enjoyed experimenting with photographing food and I hope you've enjoyed these simple classic recipes. Next week I'll be back with the usual crafty, photographic fare. Until then!

Ingredients:
4 cups cider
1/2 an orange, sliced
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1-2 tablespoons brown sugar, to taste

Combine ingredients in medium saucepan and stir over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil then reduce heat a little and let simmer for about 20-30 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Strain before serving.

Hmm, sounds delicious! It is similar to one of my favorite recipes for a 'bourbon furnace.' Minus the bourbon of course!
