I love wassail but I have never made it before. This recipe looks easy enough. Any of you have any good wassail recipes?!?!
2 quarts apple cider
1 cup packed brown sugar
4 cinnamon sticks (about 3" each)
24 whole cloves
4 cups orange juice
2 cups pineapple juice
9 thick orange slices, cut in half (optional)
In a 3-quart saucepan, stir together apple cider, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, and 24 cloves. Over medium heat, bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Add orange juice and pineapple juice. Heat just until heated through (do not boil).
To serve, strain cider mixture and pour into a warmed pitcher or slow cooker. Place orange slices in slow cooker or one in each heatproof cup and serve.
