I have put this in my 'Tried & True' book. I made this for the kids for our Christmas Tea since they don't seem to like tea ... yet. I tied the whole spices in cheesecloth for easy removal and put everything except fruit in the crockpot for 2 hours on High. I then added the fruit and turned the crockpot to Low until ready to serve. This was a hit with both the kids and the adults. So much for the tea! I will definitely make this again and have 'spirits' available for the adults to add to their cups before getting wassail. Great recipe (and great idea for 'spirits')! Thanks for posting!
NOW THIS IS A REALLY GREAT TASTING WASSAIL, & although I don't consider myself an expert, I have been making & drinking the stuff for an awful lot of years! I don't make is with alcohol anymore, but did use some freshly made apple cider (from a nearby apple growing area that we frequent!) & except for the alcohol, I followed this recipe right on down! Very nice, & I'll be making this one several times more before the New Year begins! Thanks so much for posting the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag]
Wonderful!! Just exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much1
OK I made for Halloween couldn`t wait till Christmas for this. Cider is all over now so try this you`ll like it! I used apple liqueur cut the recipe to 8 servings. Skipped the lemon was out! Made for apple photo. Thanks!
This was sooo good--warm and comforting on a cold day. I used slightly less sugar than called for but everything else was as written. It's the perfect amount of spice, if you ask me--and my guests! Everyone loved it, and I'll make this often. Thanks!
