Spiced Apple Cider, Our Favorite Family Tradition

There are just some things that you can't leave out when planning a family get-together. For my family, we enjoy this easy, just right spiced cider from September until Spring. We always make a large batch of this to serve to cold Trick Or Treaters, Thanksgiving guests and Christmas carolers.

Besides making your house smell incredible, warm and inviting, it frees up your time to attend to other dishes while your guests help themselves.

Serve with a beautiful tray of assorted sugar, molasses or oatmeal cookies.

I'm sure you'll find guests asking for it again and again. =)
