Hot Spiced Apple Cider Soap



I love making hot apple cider and it's a staple at my family's holiday table every year. The kids all gather to get a mug or two or three and the adults, well, some have been known to slip a wee bit of apple brandy in theirs! :) It's hot, sweet, spicy and scrumptious!

Inspired by fall and the smell of our beloved cider I've made Hot Spiced Apple Cider Soap. It smells so like a hot cup of apple cider, I wish you all had scratch and sniff screens! Each piece is topped with a cinnamon stick. Yummy!



You can find it here GIMME, GIMME, GIMME!

If you want to make your own yummy hot spiced apple cider here is a recipe I know you'll love~love~love!

Hot Spiced Cider

1 gallon fresh apple cider
8 cinnamon sticks
½ teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup brown sugar *or less
1 teaspoon whole allspice
the peel off ¼ of a lemon

You can either make a sachet in cheese cloth with the spices, or just put all ingredients into a large pot. Bring almost to a boil, then turn heat down to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Pull out the sachet or strain.

Enjoy ;)

peace~love~happiness,
