Wassail is probably one of my favorite parts of the holiday season! It makes the house smell incredible and, of course, also tastes marvelous & warms you right down to your toes! I usually prepare it on the stove, and then pour it into a crockpot on low, so it stays nice and hot and ready to drink all day.
1 gallon apple juice or cider
1/2 cup sucanat or honey (I use 50/50)
12 in (sweet) cinnamon stick
2 tsp whole allspice
2 tsp whole cloves
2 tsp orange zest
one orange cut into thin slices
In a large stockpot combine all ingredients.
Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to make sure the sugars don’t burn
on the bottom. Reduce heat, and simmer covered for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, strain and enjoy!!!
I hope this recipe brings some Christmas cheer to your house, just like it does to mine!
