Chamomile Apple Cider Recipe

Welcome Autumn! Nature and creatures are slowly turning inward, meaning deeper into the ground. Before that completely happens, the Autumn season gifts a bountiful harvest which includes crunchy sweet or sour Apples. This recipe uses a fresh Apple Cider featuring chamomile for a dessert-like, relaxing, evening night cap.
