Using Apples & Apple Cider.....MMM!

Spiced Mulled Cider

2 quarts apple cider
3/4 - 1 cup RealLemon Juice from concentrate
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
8 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks

In large saucepan, combine all ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 10 minutes to blend flavors. Remove spices; serve hot with extra cinnamon sticks and sliced apples if desired.

Note: You can tie spices in a small square of cheesecloth to make removal easier.

Apple Jelly Chicken

4 boneless chicken breasts
1/2 cup butter
2 Tbsp. apple jelly
1/2 cup apple cider

Place chicken under broiler or grill. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 10 minutes, turning once. Meanwhile, combine butter, jelly and apple cider in a saucepan; heat and stir over medium heat until jelly melts. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Brush mixture over chicken. Broil or grill for one minute, turn. Brush jelly mixture over chicken, again cook for one minute. Turn and repeat process. Serves 4.

Applesauce Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup

2 eggs
2 cups flour, sifted
1 cup milk
1 cup natural applesauce
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. baking powder
4 Tbsp. melted butter

Combine all the ingredients, mixing until smooth. Cook on a hot griddle or skillet. Serve with Apple Cider Syrup (see recipe). Makes about 16 pancakes. Serves 4.

Apple Cider Syrup

2 cups fresh apple cider
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1 oz. onion soup mix
1 oz. brown gravy mix

Place the beef, onion soup mix, brown gravy mix and apple cider in a slow cooker and cook on low for 5 to 8 hours. Or place ingredients in a casserole and cook in a 325 degree oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Notes: Add the optional ingredients and serve with fresh bread. If you leave those out it can served over cooked noodles or rice.
