Non Alcoholic Cranberry Cider Punch               

Makes: 16 cups

2 teaspoons whole cloves
2 teaspoons whole allspice
5 small oranges
1/2 gallon apple cider or apple juice
2 12-ounce cans frozen cranberry-raspberry juice concentrate
4 3-inch-long cinnamon sticks
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 small lemon
whole cloves and cranberries for garnish

Wrap cloves and allspice in piece of double-thickness cheesecloth to make a spice bag; tie with string. From 4 oranges, squeeze juice; reserve 1 orange for garnish.

In 6-quart sauce pot over high heat, heat spice bag, orange juice, apple cider, undiluted frozen cranberry-raspberry juice concentrate, cinnamon sticks, brown sugar, and 8 cups water to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 minutes. Discard spice bag.

Meanwhile, prepare garnish: Cut reserved orange into slices. Thinly slice lemon. Arrange lemon slices on top of orange slices, securing with cloves and garnishing with cranberries.

Pour hot punch into large heat-safe punch bowl. Gently place fruit slices in punch for garnish.
