Author Notes: Had to think about something special for my 300th post for my daily blog (even as I dread the inevitable 66 days left in this year to whiz by in a flash, leaving me with a potentially serious case of withdrawal symptoms). Picked up a container of fresh pressed apple cider while chaperoning my sons class field trip to Terhune Orchards in Princeton , NJ. and decided to drown my sorrows in some of this delicious mulled cider. A perfect pick-me-up with the bright spiciness of a cup of spiced Masala Chai and the fragrance of apples! Panfusine

  • 1 liter apple cider
  • 5-6 whole green cardamoms, smashed

Cassia is the softer flatter variety of cinnamon (the indian store variety) that I usually have a stock of. The Curly hardwood does not lend itself well to powdering!
