Hot Golden Fall Punch

Episode three of the podcast is up ready for a listen here.  It’s can be found on most stations that host podcasts (iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Spotify, FM player and Soundcloud).  This week I shared the story of how I got my name, tips on how to support a grieving friend, how to stock a dish closet, 12 habits of happy women and a delicious recipe for Hot Golden Fall Punch.

I found this recipe years ago, 30 to be exact, from the Junior League of Austin cookbook.  I make it every fall when I host parties.  A fun thing to try is setting up this hot punch in a percolator on your front porch with a tray of mugs.  When guests arrive they will smell the spices from their cars and instantly enter your home with mug full of happiness!

Hot Golden Fall Punch

4 cups of unsweetened pineapple juice

1 12 oz can of apricot nectar

4 cups of apple cider

1 cup of orange juice

2 cinnamon sticks

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp whole cloves

Pour juices into electric percolator*.  Place remaining ingredients in basket and perk.  Serve steaming hot. Serves 18-20.

*Without a percolator, pour juices in a large pot.  Simmer 10 minutes and remove spices before serving.
