    Recipe ingredients and directions:

    1 gal. apple cider

    8 cinnamon sticks

    1 lemon and 1 orange, washed and sliced

    1 T whole cloves

    1 T allspice

    1 gal. white wine

    2 c rum

    Simmer the nonalcoholic ingredients together for 1-2 hours, then

    add the wine and rum about 10 minutes before serving (hot).

    I tested this recipe by dividing all the above quantities by 5, to

    approximately scale to a 750ml bottle of white wine. The scaled-down

    recipe I used fit well in my crock pot.

    Wassail

    1 gallon apple juice or apple cider

    2 oranges

    2 lemons

    1 lime (optional)

    1 Tbsp. cloves

    1 Tbsp. allspice

    2 cinnamon sticks

    1 qt. water

    1 cup sugar

    Heat the water to boiling. Cut the lemons and oranges (and lime if using) in

    half and squeeze the juice into a separate bowl to save, throw the skins and

    pulp into the boiling water. Add spices and simmer for one hour. Remove the

    cinnamon sticks and a few cloves and allspice and save to one side. Using

    a slotted spoon or strainer remove the citrus peels and pulp and the remaining

    spices. Return the cinnamon sticks and saved spices to the water. Add the

    apple juice or cider and return to heat. When boiling remove from heat and

    add the citrus juice and sugar. Simmer very lightly for another 10 minutes

    and serve. Delicious!

    This recipe makes the whole house smell wonderful. You may also

    save the resulting mixture by allowing it to cool completely and returning

    most of it to the jug the apple juice came in. (Make certain it is really

    cool though some friends of mine lost an entire batch of wassail by pouring

    it into the jug when it was too hot, the jug cracked and spilled it all

    over.) You can then reheat it a cup or more at a time as needed. It will

    keep like this in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

    8 c Apple cider/juice

    1/2 c Packed brown sugar

    1 ea Ground nutmeg

    In a large saucepan combine apple cider/juice, brown sugar, and nutmeg.

    for spice bag, place cinnamon, allspice, and the 1 teaspoon cloves in

    cheesecloth and tie; add to cider mixture. Bring to boiling. Reduce

    heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Remove spice bag and discard. Serve
