Planning your Thanksgiving menu or a fall menu? Put this simple and fragrant cider on the burner for family or friends to enjoy while you're visiting. It's easy and delicious, and especially lovely when you use fresh-pressed apples! Be sure to let me know if you add anything extra special to your spiced cider, beyond the usual cinnamon and nutmeg. Happy Thanksgiving!
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
