Apple Cinnamon Cider

It’s no secret by now that I’m a major fan of anything flavored with apple and cinnamon. And since this is fall, it’s the perfect time to indulge in a little apple cider – or maybe a lot, if you really like it. Hot or cold, hard or soft, cider appeals to people of all ages and all walks of life.

And this apple cinnamon cider is going to be a family favorite for years to come. My girls have already told me they want me to make this again…and again…and again. That’s a sure sign of a fabulous recipe, and here’s how it’s done.

I prefer my cider chilled, and so do my children, so I always put a few ice cubes in the pan right after cooking to speed the cooling process. If you prefer warm cider, you can drink this immediately after cooking. But if you don’t get to it right away, you don’t have to worry too much. This is just as good (or maybe even better) reheated because the flavors have had longer to blend together.

Now you tell me: what’s your favorite way to drink apple cider?
