Ingredients
  • 4-5 quarts apple cider
  • 6 small baked apples
  • 3 small baked oranges w/ cloves
  • 1 small orange, sliced
  • 2 small lemons, sliced
  • 4 whole allspice berries
  • 3 or 4 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Score each apple on several sides and place on baking dish. Take whole cloves and put 6 - 8 in each orange, spacing evenly. Place oranges on baking sheet with apples and bake 40 min, or until skin of apples start to split and soften.
  2. While fruit is baking, heat cider, berries, nutmeg, and cinnamon until mixture begins to foam. Reduce heat to very low. Add one of the sliced lemons to the heated mixture. Let simmer.
  3. Once the baked fruit is done, remove from oven and let rest for a few minutes.
  4. Remove lemon slices from the cider. Take warm cider and carefully pour into the punch bowl. Slice the other lemon and remaining orange and add slices to the cider. Add the cinnamon sticks, baked apples, and orange. Serve warm.
  5. For sweeter cider, add a few tablespoons of brown sugar while cooking. For more tartness, add extra lemon slices while cooking.
