Who doesn't look forward to apple harvest every fall? One particular aspect of fall that we love is an opportunity to share hot apple cider as an accoutrement to an after-dinner dessert. It's warm and comforting, and the aroma of hot apples, cinnamon and spices permeating is throughout the house is, to us anyway, the scent of joy and friendship. Our proprietary spice blend makes the process of creating the perfect mug of hot mulled apple cider easy and intuitive. By blending in almonds and dried cherries into the pot as you heat your cider and spice mixture adds a dimension to the flavor that your tastebuds will thank you for. Then, if you're feeling a bit spirited, blend in a jigger of your favorite cognac or brandy!
All that's left is to decide which dessert to serve with it! May we suggest the plum pinwheels, the salted chocolate rye crisps, or the gingersnaps with vanilla glaze? They are always a big hit, especially around the holidays and for special occasions.
