Time for another meeting of Thyme!
Pour a mug of tea and grab a cookie for a Zoom get together on Monday, January 24th at 2 p.m.
You can join us by
As I was cleaning out the cedar chest recently, I enjoyed some memories from time I spent with my grandmother as a young girl. It occurred to me, everyone has something in their house that brings back a special childhood memory and it would be fun to share them with each other. So please select a special memory, bring it to the meeting and share the story with all of us. Since we can only have Zoom for an hour, we will be limited to one memory per person.
Instead of tea, you may like to try this hot drink:
8 cups of apple cider
12 whole cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
15 allspice berries
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
7 whole cardamon pods
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
Heat the cider. Quarter the orange and press the cloves into the peel. Place orange and remaining ingredients into cider. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Strain. You can add bourbon, brandy or rum to each cup.
*I used ground allspice and left out the cardamon pods...because I didn't know what they were??
You can store this in the fridge and microwave a mug at a time, a nice change and the kitchen smells wonderful!
