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.
