You Will Need
- 10 apples
- 10 tsp. brown sugar
- 2 bottles dry sherry or Madeira
- 1/2 tsp. grated nutmeg
- 1 tsp. ground ginger
- 3 cloves
- 3 allspice berries
- Cinnamon stick
- 2 c. sugar
- 1/2 c. water
- 6 eggs, separated
- 1 c. brandy
Cut, fill, and bake apples
Cut apples in half and core them, filling each with a teaspoon of brown sugar. Pour 1/8 inch of water in a baking pan and set them in. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, until they are softened.
Heat the other ingredients
Fill saucepan with the sherry or Madeira, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, allspice berries, cinnamon, sugar, and water. Cook on low heat, not allowing the mixture to boil.
Separate the egg yolks and beat them until light or lemon-colored. Beat the whites until they grow stiff, folding them into the yolks.
Strain mixture into eggs
Pour the wine mix through the strainer, adding it slowly to the eggs, stirring continually.
Blend the brandy with the other ingredients to complete the liquid part of the drink.
Pour and serve
Pour into a punch bowl, and float apples on the surface. Serve to guests in mugs and toast to good health and good fortune.
