It is from the cookbook, Our Best Bites (my favorite cookbook ever!)
1-64 ounce bottle apple juice or cider
1/2 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed or a high quality brand such as Simply Orange
2 cinnamon sticks
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/3 cup bottled caramel sauce (plus more to taste if desired)
Sweetened whipped cream
*Pour the apple cider into a large stockpot on the stove. Set heat to medium-high. Add orange juice, cinnamon sticks, and allspice.
*Thoroughly wash your orange and then gently stab the whole cloves into it. If you find it hard to do that without destroying the cloves, use a toothpick to poke little holes first and then insert the cloves.
*Gently drop the whole orange into the pot. Bring the cider to a boil and then reduce heat to a low simmer. Simmer on low for 60 minutes or longer if you wish. If at any time the orange splits open, remove it from the pot.
*After the cider has simmered for an hour, add caramel sauce and stir to combine and dissolve. Add more caramel to taste if needed.
* When ready to serve, ladle the cider into mugs, top with whipped cream, and give it a drizzle of caramel and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Hope you enjoy it!! I am positive you will!!
