It's fall!

It's finally feeling like fall around here, so after a chilly morning playing in the backyard, we enjoyed some quick & easy apple "cider"

Autumn Apple Juice
(all measurements very approximate - I just eyeballed it)

In large microwaveable container, stir together:

4 cups Apple juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon (or a small piece of stick cinnamon)
1/2 tsp allspice
2 cloves (or 1/4 tsp ground cloves)
1/8 tsp ground cardamom

Microwave for 1 minute, then stir. Keep going in 1-minute increments until hot enough ( I think I only did 2 or 3 minutes, because the kids don't like it too hot.

For our girls, I poured it through a strainer lined with a paper towel, so the spices weren't floating in their cups.
