Cider Beetles

I found these cider beetles as I was looking for more creative ways to use apples.  At this point, I might have OD'd on apples, but I'm not ready to admit it!  These cider beetles were a way to change up the way I do apple cider, and honestly I just thought they were super cute!  After you make them (drying out orange halves, adding the brown sugar and spices) you just drop them into 1 1/2 quarts apple juice and simmer for 30 minutes, letting all of the flavors of the spices and orange peel infuse to make tasty cider...and it makes the whole house smell amazing!
