Pumpkin Spice Apple Cider

I love pumpkin spice.  What’s the hashtag that people are using to describe this love?  Basic?  Yes.  It’s as basic as oxygen.  It’s a necessity for life.  I have no issues with loving things as basic as pumpkin spice, I mean just take a look at these pumpkin spice truffles.

So I happened to combine some pumpkin and extra spice to my apple cider.  And you know what?  I couldn’t be happier about it!

This apple cider is wonderful.  It’s made from whole ingredients. So simple it’s ridiculous.

  • Apples
  • pure pumpkin
  • cinnamon sticks
  • nutmeg
  • cloves
  • and a little all spice

Cook it all in the slow cooker with some water.  This will make your house smell like Fall heaven.

After the apples have cooked for a while just mash them up with a potato masher.  Cook for a bit longer to really let the flavors steep.  Then strain through a fine mesh strainer.

This pumpkin spice apple cider can be served warm or cold.  Personally I love it cold.
