A fun craft for all the family!
Take an apple. Use cocktail sticks to stick raisins, dried cranberries, popcorn and grapes to the turkey, giving the apple tail feathers, feet/legs, and a head. Mine even had eyes.
Use as table decorations for dinner.
To help s get in a suitably festive mood we had mulled cider before dinner. It was an experiment, for sure! It was best when mixed with 1/3 mulled apple juice, which I made for the drivers.
Mulling spices for both were: a lemon and ginger tea bag; a couple of cinnamon sticks; four cloves; and the peel from an orange (I squeezed the orange in to the cider and added the whole thing). I also added several glugs of brandy to the cider, though rum would have been infinitely better.
Note to improve the recipe: add rum; more spices (and perhaps mulling spice bags); add apple or orange juice added to the cider to sweeten it up.
