Makes: 8 servings
Serving size: 8 ounces

8 cups apple cider or apple juice
1 10 ounce package frozen sliced strawberries
4 inch stick cinnamon
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1. Combine cider or juice, frozen sliced strawberries, the 4 inches stick cinnamon, and cloves in a large saucepan. Bring to boiling and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain through a sieve lined with 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth.

For the jack-o'-lantern garnish cut a clementine in half and scoop out the insides. Using a sharp knife or a clean crafts knife cut a face in each rind. Push a wooden skewer through the rind from the bottom and out through the top.
