    Wassail Punch

    Primal Fuel
    I love the fall so this recipe came to mind.

    Ingredients

    8 whole cloves
    3-4 cinnamon sticks
    3 tbls crystalized ginger
    3 cups water
    1 1/2 cups orange juice
    1 cup pineapple juice
    1 cup lemon juice (adjust if to tart)
    1 gallon apple cider

    Directions.
    1. Wrap the cloves, cinnamon sticks, and ginger in cheese cloth, and tie with string.
    2. Add liquid to a big pot.
    3. Put spice bag in liquid and bring to boil
    4. Reduce heat and simmer for an hour or so.
    5. Serve either hot or cold.

    * This is obviously alot of liquid so I usually make it and bottle it up for relatives or bring it to a holiday party.
    * Most recipes have either regular sugar or brown sugar in them. I think with all the fruit it is plenty sweet. If you google wassail you will find alot of recipes with varying ingredients. Enjoy!

    That sounds good, but then I'm in autumn overdrive right now, so anything with cider sounds tasty. =] I've made spiced cider, but the other fruit juices would be an interesting addition.

    I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.
