It’s Friday, just a few days before Christmas… I’ll keep it short and sweet today.

Not long ago we had a group of friends over to our house. On a whim, I poured a gallon of fresh apple cider in the slow cooker, along with a cup of caramel flavored syrup and a spoonful of good quality sea salt.

And do you know what? I had an instant hit on my hands, with the kids and adults alike!

Salted Caramel Apple Cider is SO GOOD guys. Tart apple flavor with a rich buttery salty caramel essence.

The kids sipped Salted Caramel Apple Cider with warm smiles and a twinkle in their eyes. And the grownups… well they doctored it up with brandy and cinnamon moonshine.

Either way, it was fabulous.

This Salted Caramel Apple Cider just the thing to keep warm in the crock pot (or on the stove top) this Christmas Eve.

Have a wonderful weekend full of memory making and marvelous meals!
