I know it is a little late for Halloween recipes but these are fun through the fall and into the winter. These two recipes are the request of my sweetie, we always have a Halloween party with our friends that have kids but since the kids were questionably sick we canceled last minute and partied with ourselves. But of course my sweet Bill has to have his ‘treats’. I hope you enjoy these as much as he does.

-Apple Cider-
6 c. apple juice
1/4 c. maple syrup or agave nectar
2 cinnamon sticks
6-8 whole cloves
2 oranges, sliced in rounds
2 1/4 c. pineapple juice
1. I place all these ingredients in a large pot or a crock pot, turn on low and let simmer until warmed through.
2. Ladle into mugs and ENJOY!
-Pumpkin Seeds-
1 1/2 T. melted butter or olive oil
2 c. raw whole pumpkin seeds
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. garlic salt
1/4 t. cumin
1/4 t. paprika, chili powder
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
1. Preheat oven to 275 F.
2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly and place on a lined (parchment paper) cookie sheet.
3. Bake for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Cool and place in a bowl to share. Enjoy
