Hello Loves, my favorite autumn drink is without a doubt apple cider. This fall I learned to make homemade apple cider. Albeit time consuming, making apple cider is not so difficult, and is really worth the effort, as it tastes delicious (and makes your whole house smell incredible). Here is how to make Apple Cider (and a few different ways to serve and enjoy);

-Put apples into large pot.
-Add in the sugar
-Cover the apples about three inches with water.
-Wrap cinnamon sticks (and any other seasonings) in doubled up cheese cloth and tie. Place in pot.
-Boil uncovered on high for 30 minutes, reduce to medium heat for another 30 minutes.
