Make the cupcakes:
In a large saucepan boil the cider until it is reduced to about 1 1/2 cups and let it cool. In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat together the shortening and the sugar until the mixture is fluffy, then beat in the eggs, 1 at a time.
Into the bowl sift together the flour, the cloves, the cinnamon, the baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Stir in the reduced cider, and combine the mixture well.
Divide the batter among 18 paper-lined 1/2-cup muffin tins and bake the cupcakes in the middle of a preheated 375F. oven for 25 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
Transfer the cupcakes to a rack, let them cool in the tins, and remove them from the tins.
