Fresh Mulled Apple Cider Recipe

Mulled Apple Cider

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.

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.
