Crock Pot ~ Wassail Holiday Punch Recipe

I had never heard of or tried Wassail until I tried some a few weeks ago at my mother in laws house. This particular Wassail recipe is made in your slow cooker aka your crock pot. It only takes 7 ingredients.

If you have never heard of Wassail, you can find a good definition of it wikipedia. This type of punch is usually served at a holiday party...like Christmas or New Year's Eve parties.

Wassail Beverage Recipe

2 qt. apple juice
1 pt. cranberry juice
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon allspice
1 small orange
5-6 whole cloves

In a large crock pot (I use a 5 quart crock pot) combine the juices with the granulated sugar. Mix until all is combined. Add in the cinnamon sticks and allspice. Poke the whole cloves into the orange and drop it into the mixture. You want to slow cook it on the high setting for 1 hour and then turn it down to low and cook for another 4-6 hours. When done, serve it hot.
