The Forest Feast
After several years in the big city, I moved to a cabin in the woods of Northern California. Inspired by local ingredients I create simple, beautiful, healthy recipes anyone can make. Follow me on Twitter and Instagram @theforestfeast. Please feel free to re-post on your site, but will you please link and credit me and send me a link when it's up? Thanks! Send me an email.
On my recent trip to Spain, I bought these adorable Moroccan tea glasses in Granada, sold all over the city because of its Moorish history. I drink a lot of tea during the week, but when hosting a holiday party, I like to make a big pot of cider. It makes the house smell so cozy as guests walk in.
Did you know that the word granada means pomegranate in Spanish?! I learned this as I saw pomegranate trees full of fruit growing all over the Granada- so amazing. Because of this, I was inspired to add fresh pomegranates to cider. I simmered apple juice, pomegranate juice and spices, then garnished each cup with fresh pomegranate seeds and an apple slice decorated with cloves. I think this would be a fun after-dinner drink on Thanksgiving Day to cozy up by the fire with (plus, it can be spiked with bourbon for the adults!).

Cheers…And Happy (almost) Thanksgiving!
