I had never done anything like that before, but I thought I could manage the task... and guess what! I did! AND everyone liked it... REALLY liked it. The parents were still talking about it this morning.
I started off the assignment by going to (of course) Pinterest. I typed 'Apple' into the search bar and a bunch of different things came up. I just looked around until I found this. At first I wanted to make a pie, but to be honest, I was scared because I've never made a pie. Plus, I'm comfortable with cakes and I was already branching out by using apples.
I'm not going to re-write the recipe because Monica from Lick The Bowl Good just wrote an excellent post about it... which I followed perfectly (here). But I took a lot of pictures so I'll just share those!
It calls for 1 1/2 cup finely chopped apples. I wasn't exactly sure how many that was, so I peeled 3 apples and chopped them up. It ended up being a little more than I needed, but I just added the extra apple pieces to our cider.

NEXT it was time to make the cider. I followed this recipe that I found on (I'm obsessed) Pinterest. We used a little less Hot Tamales than the recipe calls for, but it was enough for us.

Overall, it was a lovely afternoon that really got us in the fall mood. I highly recommend both recipes!
