Apple Cider Heads or Any one you know?

We recently enjoyed a Halloween themed dinner when one of our out-of-town sisters was visiting. And, as part of an ongoing birthday month celebration, by request, there was ham and broccoli quiche. 
To add to the festivities of the evening, I made shrunken apple heads to float in the warm and spicy apple cider.  Directions on the Martha Stewart website can be found here
Simply cut the apple in half, peel them, carve faces on the round side of the apple, soak in lemon juice, and then slowly bake in a low oven for several hours.  When the apple heads are lightly golden brown, shriveled and shrunken, poke cloves into the eye sockets.

Float in a tureen of warm apple cider and enjoy with your Halloween celebrations!
