Anna has made chai for winter and autumn events for years–she just has a magic touch with it.  We managed to tickle it out of her.  Make up a large batch of the chai (leaving out the honey and milk) and store it in your fridge to reheat for daily use or for your next event.  Unlike store bought chai teas, you can control the sweetness here.

Nuts make excellent milk, each one lending its own unique flavor and nutritional benefits.  Make a thicker cream to pour over hot baked fruit or make thinner to add to smoothies or make hot chocolate.
