1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled about 5 minutes

1. Adjust oven rack to center position and preheat to 400 degrees. Line a standard 12-muffin pan with papers and set aside.
2. Whisk eggs and sugar together in a large bowl. Stir in grated apples and orange juice and let stand for 10 minutes to allow apples to render their juices.
