This was sent to me by an on line friend in an e mail and is not my own personal creation, nor is it my photo. I can't take credit for any of it, but thought it was an interesting way to serve hot cider and wanted to share it here.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

12 apples (fuji, honey crisp, red delicious, or gala)
1 liter high-quality apple cider
4 cinnamon sticks (more for garnish, optional)
2 whole star anise (more for garnish but optional)
2 lemons, halved

Directions Step-By-Step

1
With a knife remove the tops of all of the apples.
2
Begin hollowing out each of the pieces of fruit and place on a serving try. Immediately sprinkle the juice of the lemons over the hollowed out apples to prevent browning. (Sprinkle lemon juice on the part you remove from each apple before placing in zip lock bag to use for another preparation…applesauce for breakfast, perhaps.)
3
In a large pot, bring the apple cider to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and add the cinnamon sticks and star anise. Cover and allow to simmer for 20 minutes.
4
Remove the cinnamon sticks and star anise and ladle the warm cider into the apple and pear cups.

Garnish with additional cinnamon sticks and star anise. Serve warm.
