When I saw that Torani was an event sponsor, I did a little happy dance. We have lots of bottles of Torani in our cupboards. We add them to sparkling water for an easy homemade Italian soda; my husband and I add them to coffee for a special sweet treat. But when I received the bottles of Salted Caramel and Vanilla syrups, the boys asked for steamers and hot cider. Done!


And I served the cider in the Caleo double-walled mugs from sponsor Joyholt. You can read my thoughts about the mugs in my Gløgg (Danish Mulled Wine) post from earlier in the week.

Salted Caramel Hot Apple Cider 

Ingredients serves 8
  • 10 C apple cider
  • 3 to 4 cinnamon sticks + more for garnish
  • 5 to 6 whole cloves
  • 4 cardamom pods, cracked open
  • 4 T mulling spices (my homemade version)
  • 5 to 6  pieces candied ginger
  • peel from 1 organic lemon (I used a Meyer lemon) + more for garnish
  • 8 to 16 t Salted Caramel syrup (prefer Torani), divided, depending on tastes (we opt for less)



Procedure
Place all of the ingredients - except the syrup - in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat immediately. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain out spices.

Pour 1 to 2 t of syrup into each serving mug. Pour strained cider into mugs. Garnish with a cinnamon stick. Serve immediately.

  1. I love mixing old traditions with new ones. We always have a cherry cake, cheesecake, plenty of cookies (shortbread, sugar, peanut butter, oatmeal, spritz, macaroons, snowballs) and some bars. This year we are hanging a variety of appetizers, a buttenut squash soup, glazed ham, scalloped potatoes, roasted vegetables with glaze, salad, stuffing, and corn pudding.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
