Autumn is officially here and I don’t know about you but pumpkin’s can’t have all the spot light! I have way been way too excited about seeing barrels full of my favorite apples: Honeycrisp! I feel like I could eat like 4 of these a day (what’s that they say “too much of a good thing”…?) No but really.
However I realize it’s prob not the best idea to actually eat that many apples in a day (hello fiber)! Also I don’t buy juice but I wanted an apple based drink…so I decided to infuse my water with some thin apple slices. But I didn’t stop there…
- 1/4 of a large apple – thinly sliced
- 1 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar
- Pumpkin Pie Spice (Trader Joe’s) OR just cinnamon
- 1 stevia packet (optional)
Mix your ingredients together in a large mason jar and allow it to infuse for a little while (no exact science here… 10 mins, 1 hour, overnight…it’s your call)! Drink and enjoy!
Just make sure you use Apple Cider Vinegar that is labeled :
“With the Mother”
What is “with the mother” mean?
This is kind of like the live cultures found in yogurt. When when you get apple cider vinegar “with the mother”, you’re getting the whole food as opposed to a refined version of it. It’s unrefined therefore some of the live organisms remain in the vinegar, adding to it’s beneficial properties. When you buy raw, unfiltered, apple cider vinegar “with the mother” it will sometimes look cloudy, not clear.
