We have been enjoying cooler temperatures and lower humidity here for the last few days.
This didn't happen a minute too soon! I am ready for fall!
As luck would have it, our landlords delivered a box full of apples from their orchard this weekend.
Of course, I used some for this super easy apple pie filling, but I wanted to do something a little more creative than apple sauce with the remainder.
I ended up using several apples to make apple cider. Who would have thought homemade apple cider was so easy . . . and delicious?!
I'm especially impressed at the small amount of added sugar --in the form of a couple tablespoons of maple syrup.
I plan to discover a few fall-inspired cocktails using apple cider as a mixer. I'm look forward to sharing those with you!
And speaking of cocktails . . .
I used a couple of those apples to infuse whiskey for this Apple Whiskey Cocktail.
I'm loving it and hope you do too!
