apple cider nights


Guys, if this stuff got us through Making a Murderer, it can get us through anything. I won’t comment on my stance on that situation (I like to keep things light and airy here), but I think we can all agree that it was tough to watch. BUT. CAN’T. STOP. WATCHING.

I know that some of you are just beginning that documentary so I thought I’d share this comforting recipe. I know I shared it last holiday season, but the recipe has changed a little since then. I was making everyones tongue numb because I was putting way too much clover. Ya live and learn. Drink up and calm down.


As always, I fit as many superfoods in as possible.

You will need. . .

4-6 apples (choose sweet ones, with one green bitter)

5 whole cloves

4 cinnamon sticks

4 whole cardamom pods

1/2 tspn ground ginger

1/2 tspn nutmeg

3 large tbls honey



Cut apples into quarters, place in a large pot. Pour water over the apples until they’re completely covered. Add cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, honey and cardamom. Bring to a rolling boil. Turn down to simmer mode and cover pot. Stirring occasionally for about one hour.


Sip, sip, hooray!
