The BEST apple cider I have ever tasted! From Family Fun magazine. I always triple this one!! Enjoy!
- 1⁄4 cup heavy cream
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 3 cups apple cider
- 1⁄2 cup water
caramel whipped cream
- 1⁄2 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- First, bring the cream and brown sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the cider and the water and raise the heat to medium high, heating just until the cider begins to steam, about 4 minutes.
- Divide among 4 mugs, top each one with 2 tablespoons of caramel whipped cream (recipe follows) and serve immediately.
- Caramel Whipped Cream: In a small chilled bowl, whip the heavy cream with the brown sugar until soft peaks form.
Ok, first of all this was delicious. But it should be noted in BOLD PRINT that the cider must not be boiling...it curdles the cream! Which makes for a very ugly drink and one that you can't serve to your teenage daughter's friends after they've been outside playing in the snow! The cider should be warmed only. Add the cream and if its still not warm enough warm them together a little more gradually. Be very careful though not to curdle the cream. it's a touchy enough recipe that it does require babysitting. But as for being DELICIOUS and getting oohs and ahhhs (and a "thanks, mom"-hug) it is well worth it!!!
Very tasty drink on this cold, icy night in Pittsburgh. Thank you!
If you don't like spiced Apple Cider, you'll probably like this. I love it! I've made it several times now.
