4 cups freshly made apple juice – approximately 4-6 apples depending on the quality of your juicer
5 whole cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
4 whole cardamom pods
2 Chinese star anise
1-inch piece of fresh ginger
½ teaspoon fresh lemon zest
½ orange, thinly sliced

1.  Juice apples and place completed juice in a medium-sized saucepan.
2.  Add cloves, cinnamon sticks, cardamom, anise, ginger and lemon zest.
3.  Cover and heat on low-medium heat for 20 minutes. The mixture doesn’t need to boil. Just get it warm, up to around 170F or so.
