Holiday Cider
Ingredients
  • 2 - 4  baking apples, cored
  • 2  teaspoons  whole cloves
  • 1/3  cup  water
  • 4  crab apples (optional)
  • 4  medium oragnes
  • 4  medium lemons
  • 8  cups  apple cider
  • 1/2  cup  sugar
  • 12  inches  stick cinnamon
  • 1  teaspoon  ground allspice
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Insert about half the cloves into 2 baking apples. Place the apples in a 2-quart square baking dish. Add the water. Bake apples, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Add crab apples, if desired. Bake an additional 25 to 30 minutes or until apples and crab apples are tender; cool slightly. Halve or quarter baking apples. Set aside.

2. Meanwhile, squeeze juice from oranges and lemons (you should have 1-1/3 cups orange juice and 3/4 cup lemon juice). In a 4-quart Dutch oven combine orange and lemon juices, apple cider, sugar, cinnamon, remaining cloves, allspice, and nutmeg. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove whole cloves and stick cinnamon from cider mixture. To serve, place apples in a large heat-proof punch bowl; carefully pour cider mixture into bowl. Makes 12 to 16 servings.
