This one makes a great center piece for your table as well as a handy punch bowl! Use a black marker to paint a jack-o-lantern face on the front, you'll need this pumpkin whole!

1 hollowed and well cleaned pumpkin
2 oranges
Whole cloves
6 cups apple juice
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup honey
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 1/4 cups pineapple juice

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Stud the whole oranges with cloves, spacing them about two inches apart and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven.
2 In a large saucepan, combine the apple juice and cinnamon stick; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the nutmeg, honey, lemon juice and pineapple juice.
3 Serve hot in a punch bowl with the 2 clove-studded baked oranges floating on top. To serve in the hollow pumpkin, you may want to cool it first so it doesn't cook the inside of the pumpkin.
