Thanksgiving Day we made our first Wassail of the holiday season. It is a delicious tradition in our house and the kids always look forward to it. This year our 11 year old Collin prepared the Thanksgiving wassail and he did a terrific job. It tasted just as wonderful as ever, maybe even a little bit sweeter, being made by such a sweet guy! :)
1 gallon Apple Cider
1 tsp Whole Cloves
1 tsp Whole All spice
2 3" cinnamon sticks
2/3 cup sugar
orange studded with whole cloves
Mix all the ingredients together in a large pot or slow cooker (I prefer the slow cooker that way I can keep it on low and we can enjoy the hot cider throughout the day). Bring to a boil. (In a slow cooker turn on high and in about an hour should be good and hot). Reduce heat and let simmer.
