My mom always always made hot cider for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I never knew how much I loved that tradition until I got married and started sharing holidays with Chris's family, minus the hot cider! So, a couple of years back when we were celebrating Thanksgiving with his family, I introduced this gut warming, heart comforting caramel cider. WOW.
