I made this for Thanksgiving. It was great! I apparently didn't read the directions where it says to put the spices in a cheesecloth. DOH! I just dumped everything in the crockpot. I didn't have whole alspice, so I used ground, which wasn't a problem, but the whole cloves got too strong by the end of the day. Next time I'll use the cheesecloth. This was a huge hit. Even the baby loved it. She had hers without the brandy the grown-ups put in theirs. ;)
I love this recipe. To make it extra special I add 1/2 - 3/4 cup of frozen orange juice concentrate while the mixture is simmering. I have made this for many gatherings, no matter how much I make it is never enough. Everyone loves it and wants the recipe. The house smells wonderful while it is simmering too.
