Wassail recipe

Waes thee hael
“be thou hale”

1 Gallon apple cider

2 Cups orange juice

8 Sticks cinnamon

10 – 12 whole cloves

2-3 Whole star anise pods (I’ve never found them!)

1 T allspice berries (or a shake of allspice)

1 lemon quartered

2 Oranges, sliced

1 Cup sugar

Simmer all of the above in a stockpot for 1 ½ to 2 hours, then strain out solids

Then add:

1 Gallon white wine

2 Cups rum

Return to warm, and ladle to mugs – this is delightful on a cold day, but enjoy with caution
