Wassail is one of our family favorite holiday treats. I like it because it's easy and makes the house smell nice. My kids like it because it's yummy. My youngest affectionately refers to it as "weasle", so if he tells you we're eating weasle over here, you'll know what he's talking about. (Don't tell my kids, but it's also kind of healthy compared to most holiday treats.) Here's my recipe:
1 can frozen orange juice
1 can frozen apple juice
6 cans of water
2 sticks of cinnamon
1/4 cup of brown sugar (more or less to taste)
Mix all ingredients together in a big pot on the stove. I usually heat it at medium until it's almost boiling. Then I turn the heat down to the lowest setting. The longer you leave it on the stove, the better it tastes, but you might have to add more water.
Optional: You can use twice as much apple juice if you prefer.
