Here's a recipe that we make every winter, for Christmas, New Year's Eve, or just because we want something really yummy and hot to drink. You can make it on the stovetop, or use a crockpot on high until it gets hot, then turn down to the low setting to keep it hot for the duration of the party! We had this the night we trimmed the Christmas tree...
Hot Mulled Cider:
(makes 10 c.)
4 cups pineapple juice
6 cups apple cider or juice
3 sticks whole cinnamon
2 tsp whole cloves
Mix all in a pan on stovetop, or in the crockpot. Heat on low til steaming; serve hot. Great with doughnuts, or cookies. (If you have leftovers, be sure to remove the whole spices before refrigerating, as they will turn the juice bitter if left in.)
I have been named for a friendship award by Hakucho!
What a nice thing, thanks Hakucho! I really love the whole community of bloggers, you guys have all made my life more full since I started interacting with you!
In turn, I would like to bestow this award on my other faithful blog-pals:
Opal at Akamai Knitter (Thanks Opal, you've been there for me from the very beginning!)
Vyvyan at Knitting In a Happy Camper
Laura at Adventures in AK
Acornbud at Acornbud's Yarns
Shell at Fiber Among the Roses
Carola at My Living Room
I'd like to give it back to Hakucho as well--she's been a great source of information and advice!
I hope there is not anyone I forgot to mention. Anyone who comments on my blog deserves this award, because many people lurk but it's those who talk to me that have become my friends! Thanks, y'all :)
