The ABCs of Fall: A is for Apples

The ABCs of Fall: A is for Apples
One of my absolute favorite memories from childhood is each fall when we would visit the farm with our class. We would each get to pick out a pumpkin to bring home. The best part though, was the farm had a really big apple cider pressing machine. We got to watch the machine work, then drink a cup of fresh apple cider and bring home a small container of cider along with our pumpkin. I think those experiences shaped my absolute love for apple cider.
I find apple cider to be the PERFECT fall beverage. You can drink it cold, but even better, you can drink it warm, and even better than that, you can drink it warm with a shot of rum or brandy. ;-) Spiked warm apple cider is the perfect hot toddy when you are sick in the fall/winter as well.
I've put together a roundup of apple activities for the kids, and apple cocktails for mom, that I'm looking forward to trying this fall.
