Mulled apple cider and sherry punch, spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg and garnished with baked, brown sugar-sweetened apple rings.
3 large cooking apples
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
4 cups apple cider
2 cups sherry
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 to 4 thin slices of lemon
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Core the apples and arrange them in a shallow pan. Sprinkle the brown sugar and bake until the apples are tender (20 to 25 minutes). Set aside.
- Heat the cider in a saucepan over low heat, bringing it up to a boil. Add the sherry, sugar, spices and lemon slices. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then cover tightly and let stand over very low heat for 3 or 4 minutes. Do not boil.
- Remove the lemon slices and pour into a punch bowl. Garnish with baked apples.
