- Juice of 3 Lemons
- 6 Red Apples
- 500 ml of Apple Juice
- 1 Cinnamon Stick
- 2 Star Anise
- 1 Liter of Cider or Ginger Ale (for Children)
- 100 ml of Spiced Rum
Make the Heads
Squeeze the Juice of 3 Lemons Into A Large Bowl. Peel 6 Red Apples, Core and Halve Lengthways. Using A Small Sharp knife and A Melon Baller, Create Different Faces and Expressions on the Apples (the Apples Will Shrink so don’t be Afraid to Carve Large Features). Once Carved, Make Sure to Completely Coat and Rest the Apples in the Lemon Juice Until you are Ready to Bake.
Preheat the Oven to Gas ½, 120ºC, Fan 100ºC, and Place your 12 ‘Heads’ on A Lined Baking Tray. Bake in the Oven for 2 Hours and have A Shrunken Effect.
Make the Punch
Heat 500 ml of Apple Juice, 1 Cinnamon Stick and 2 Stars Anise. Turn off the Heat and Leave to Infuse for at Least an Hour. Once the ‘Heads’ are Out of the Oven, Reheat the Apple Juice and Add 1 Liter of Cider (use Ginger Ale if you are Making for Children) and Heat Until Just Under A Simmer. Add in 100 ml Spiced Rum, if you Like.
