Makes 4 quarts
I make sure to have this simmering when guests arrive because the delicious smell fills the house.
If you want to spike it try fireball.
- 1 apple ( I use honeycrisp or pink lady)
- 12 cloves
- 4 quarts apple juice
- 1 slice orange
- 1 star anise
- pinch allspice
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- Stud the apple with cloves. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large pot over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Simmer for at least 20 minutes.
- Keep on low for up to 4 hours.
