25 Days of Holiday Delights: Wassail



When you are frozen to the bone, nothing warms you up quite like a delicious hot drink. One of our new family favorites is actually an old family favorite that my husband grew up drinking: wassail. A few years ago, I put together a cookbook for my husband’s family for Christmas. My husband–who loves to cook as much as I do–submitted this recipe, and this is what he wrote about it: “If made properly, this should evoke memories of childhood and holidays. If it doesn’t, you either made it wrong or you need to work on your holiday spirit.”

Wassail

1 gallon apple cider/juice
1 can frozen apple juice concentrate
1/2 can frozen OJ concentrate
8-10 whole allspice balls
8-10 whole cloves
2-3 cinnamon sticks
a few dashes of Molly McButter

Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Heat through and serve. Store leftovers in the refrigerator with all of the spices included, and it will get stronger and better-tasting every day!
