Day 56 - A Cup Of ______

Day 56 of the 365 photo challenge is “A Cup Of ______.” You guys know how much I love my tea. Today, double chai with Samurai and Maharajah, and a dash of almond milk.

Chai Apple Cider Caramels with Pink Himalayan Salt

Caramel may be my favorite substance on this entire blue marble of ours.

Especially when the weather turns cold, I want it in every form, on everything.

The richness of the slightly burned sugars and butter and cream are lent a depth and complexity with the addition of a black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon and clove-infused apple cider syrup and spicy chai. Then we add a bright but earthy acidity that comes from a dash of raw and unfiltered apple cider vinegar.

All of these flavors are pricked up and made to sing with a sprinkling of mineral-rich pink Himalayan salt right at the end. In short, these caramels are probably the best thing you will put in your mouth this winter.

I think we may have nearly every type of tea imaginable, from black to green to white, maté, oolong, herbal, rooibus – let the delicious commence.

Oh, and buy this book. It’s hella cool. Man, I need to stop watching South Park while posting.
