3 cups apple cider
½ teaspoon whole cloves
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon orange extract
⅓ cup dark rum
cinnamon & turbinado sugar for rim garnish
1 whole apple, thinly sliced
Combine apple cider, cloves, cinnamon and extract in a small sauce pan
over medium heat. Bring to a gentle simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Strain out cloves, mix in rum and set aside.
In a small plate combine sugar and cinnamon.
Wet the rim of the serving glasses with some extra rum and dip into sugar mixture to coat the entire rim.
Pour cider into glasses and serve warm.
Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
Place apple slices on a parchment lined baking sheet (slice the apple whole, do not core).
Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg and bake for about 2 hours, flipping
slices half way through. Watch carefully after 1 hour 30 minutes to make
sure they don’t burn. You want to remove them when crispy, not burnt.
Use as garnish with cider or eat as a snack!
