 Ingredients List

  • 3 sm Apples
  • 1 3" stick of cinnamon
  • 1 2" piece dried ginger root
  • 4 Coriander seeds
  • 3 Whole cloves
  • 3 Whole allspice berries
  • 2 Cardamom seeds
  • 1 c Water
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1/2 ts Freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 ts Mace
  • 4 1/2 c Ale
  • 3 c Dry sherry or madeira
  • 3 Eggs, separated


Wash, core and bake the apples at 350F. for 30 to 45 minutes or until
tender, but not mushy. Tie all of the whole spices together in a
cheesecloth bag. Combine the water and sugar in a large pot. Add the spice
bag, grated nutmeg and mace. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is
dissolved. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the ale and
sherry. Heat to just below the boiling point. Meanwhile, beat the egg
whites until stiff and beat the egg yolks until thick. Fold the whites into
the yolks in a heatproof punch bowl. Remove the spice bag and add the
heated liquid very gradually to the eggs, stirring briskly after each
addition. Float the roasted apples on top. Serve hot. Yields 12 servings.
