I can't tell a lie. This post has been sitting here in drafts for a whole long year. Yes, I created this a year ago and somehow things got busy around here, what with adventure outside posts and Halloween posts, that I somehow missed sharing this most amazingly perfect autumn sipper.
You know I have a thing for the sippable favourites, and when the temperatures get cool, it's time to heat up those drinks.
Given that it is apple season, and that my husband and I depart for the west-coast Cali shores in just over a month, we're really into autumn all Canadian-style and part of that means a whole lot of apples (and toque wearing).
- 8 apples, cored and each cut into 8
- 2 Tbs ground cinnamon or 3 cinnamon sticks
- 1 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 Tbs coriander seeds
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp maca
- 2 Tbs coconut sugar or succanat
- Water to cover
- Place all ingredients in a medium size pot and pour in enough water just to cover the apples.
- Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer for 90 minutes.
- Allow to cool slightly and remove cinnamon sticks.
- Using a potato masher or fork, mush the apples and the pour full mix through a strainer or nut sack to remove the pulp and apple skins.
- Serve piping hot!
And what about the pulp? I threw mine into a blender and whipped it smooth and used it in place of apple sauce in a most amazing Apple Gingerbread Cake.
