    This was fun and delicious. Not something my family usually does, but I was glad I took the time to make this as everyone enjoyed the treat. I did not change a thing and it turned out perfect.

    So easy to make one serving or enough to serve a crowd. Absolutely delicious!

    This was really delicious....I went looking for a recipe that would include some of the many gallons of apple juice I had canned this fall, and this is a keeper. We go through a lot of tea in the winter months at our house, so I'm sure this recipe will be used again and again.
