Honey Wassail Recipe

Nothing is better on a cold winter day then a hot drink. I prefer hot tea over coffee. I just don't care for the taste of coffee. 

Then there is cider! Yummy! If you want to take that cider up a notch in flavor that is where Wassail comes in. Wassail in basically an Old English word that means, "be you healthy". There are several different variation and flavors for Wassail. This particular one caught my attention because of the honey in it. I can't help it with all the honey from our beehives. It's hard to ignore it when you are selling honey and your house always seems sticky.

Honey Wassail

1/2 Gallon Apple Cider
1 Quart Cranberry Juice
1 Cup Honey
4 Cups Water
4 Cinnamon Sticks
1 TSP Whole Clover


Put the cinnamon and cloves in a spice bag. Simmer all the ingredients for 15-20 minutes. Remove the spice bag and serve.

I actually leave the spice bag in around 30 minutes as I like a stronger taste of the spices. Enjoy.
