It's been awhile since Jason and I have carved pumpkins together - not since before we were married, so it was time for us to buckle town and get some pumpkins. We didn't have carving tools, which was a bad idea as carving hello kitty with a steak knife and exacto blade while drinking rum isn't wonderful. Fortunately, I have no cuts! So here's some photos from the night and a yummy spice recipe to add to your apple cider this fall.
What You'll Need
1 Quart Apple Cider
3-4 Cinnamon Sticks
1 Tablespoon Cloves
Sprinkling of Nutmeg & Allspice
4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
Combine your ingredients and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes. Strain into cups and serve hot.
