Here's my favorite traditional Christmas Wassail. I've had this recipe since the 70's.
It make 1 1/2 Gallons.
If you have a Cider Mill close to you, get your Cider there.
Here's what you'll need:
A large Stock Pot.
1 Gallon of Apple Cider
1 Quart of Pure Orange Juice
1 Quart of Pineapple Juice
24 Whole Cloves
4 Sticks of Cinnamon
1 C Granulated Sugar
Mix all ingredients in the Stock Pot.
Simmer on the stove for 10 minutes.
Remove the pot, strain it to remove the Cloves and Cinnamon Sticks.
Return to the Stove and continue simmering as you serve it.
For presentation, place a half slice of Orange studded with a few Cloves into each Mug.
Peace in the Kitchen!
