Aunt Ethel's Hot Spiced Cider

Item 38212 Apple Cup and saucer $7.95 at

Aunt Ethel was a great woman who lived into her 90's. Her philosophy was simple. She stated that God himself had made all of our bodies and we need to tend to our bodies in order to honor God and thank him for the pleasure of living. She said that our body will tell us when we are hungry and thirsty so we need to hasten to learn about ourselves first. According to her, if we tend to our body like we are supposed to, we will never need to worry about our health because like carefully tended crops, we will be well nourished and strong. Here is her recipe for cider. Enjoy!
