Full preparation

  1. Make each pomander by wrapping string around the Pink Lady® apple as if you are tying a bow around a present. Wrap the string around the apple three times and tie a knot to secure. Leave some long pieces of string on the top of the apple.
  2. Using a sharp skewer or a tooth pick, prick holes in vertical lines down the apple, then push the cloves into the holes.
  3. In a large pan place the Pink Lady® apple juice, rum, orange peel, cinnamon sticks, star anise and your Pink Lady® pomanders. Gently bring to a near boil, then let the juice simmer gently for 5 minutes and turn off the heat. Serve hot or warm.
