For my recipe I’m bringing warm spiked apple cider using Virginia made apple cider. The picture featured at the top of this post is Carter Mountain Orchard in the Virginia Appalachian Valley. It’s located not too far from Charlottesville, and I have many fond memories of going apple picking, wine tasting, and buying delicious apple cider from this beautiful mountainside orchard. Each year I like to start out the winter with some warm apple cider from this orchard, and I’m excited to read about all the stories from others during the Warming Trends event this weekend!

My spiked apple cider recipe is easy to make, and only requires a few ingredients. I like to have spice bags handy when mulling cider, it makes removing the spices from the drink far less stressful and cuts down on the preparation time once the cider is warm. The easiest way to prepare this recipe is with a crock pot, but if you don’t have any available you can easily use a stove top pot. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do, and that it fills your entire house with the sweet aroma of fall time. Check out my recipe in either my video shown above, or the written recipe below!
