directions

  • In a large pot, place water, apple juice concentrate, orange juice concentrate, apricot nectar, lemonade concentrate, and brown sugar.
  • Tie cloves in a small piece of cheesecloth and secure with kitchen twine and drop in the pot, leaving a piece of twine where you can fish it out or place them in a large tea ball (this prevents you from having to strain the wassail later).
  • Tie cinnamon sticks together with some kitchen twine, leaving some of the twine where you can fish it out.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 25-30 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove cloves and cinnamon from wassail.
  • Add wine to wassail, and stir gently.
  • Garnish with apple slices, if desired.
  • Keep warm and serve from pot or you may decide to serve from the warm setting on a crockpot.

    I love Wassail, have not tried this particular recipe as I cannot legally buy wine quite yet.. but I had to rate high for the suggestion of the cheesecloth. I am verymuch known for using ground ingrediants wrapped and tied in either a coffee filter or paper towel. :-D yay for not straining things with no loss of flavor!
