Here I Go A-Wassailing.

Figgy pudding is not my thing, but how about some wassail, straight from my circa 1979 Betty Crocker?

Wassail

1 gallon apple cider
2 teaspoons whole cloves
2 teaspoons allspice
2 three inch sticks cinnamon
half cup sugar
2 oranges, studded with cloves

Heat all ingredients except oranges until boiling; then simmer 20 minutes. Serve in punch bowl with oranges floating. It's good stuff.

Make it every year, though we use a crockpot and slow heat it to boiling.....oranges optional! Kids and adults love it, but I stick with Sam Adams Winter Lager for my spice kick.
Merry Christmas to all!
