It's Christmas morning and that means presents. Chef Emeril Lagasse has got one for you: apple cider.


  • 1 apple
  • 2 teaspoons whole cloves
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 4 quarts apple cider, fresh if possible
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
  • Cinnamon sticks for garnish, optional
  • Cooking Directions

    Stud the apple with the cloves. Combine all of the ingredients except for the cinnamon sticks. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Simmer until the flavors come together, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat, discard the apple. Ladle into mugs and garnish each serving with a slice of orange and a cinnamon stick.

    Yield: About 1 gallon
