Crockpot English Apple Cider

Wassail is an English Apple Cider that was drunk to guarantee a good apple harvest the following year. More importantly, it is delicious!  I drink way too many cups of the stuff during the holiday season. We always made it on the stove, but with an infant and a busy schedule, I found myself pressed for time this fall, so I attempted it in the crockpot. So easy and it tastes just as delicious! It also doesn't hurt that it makes your house smell AMAZING!

I love it so much, I am sharing the family recipe (with a few slight changes) with all of you!


 4 qts apple cider
1 heaping tsp whole allspice
1 heaping tsp whole nutmeg
1 heaping tsp whole cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
1 can orange juice concentrate (thawed)
1/3 cup brown sugar


Pour two quarts apple cider into crockpot.  

Add all the spices.

Let cook on high for 1 hour. Strain (or strain after second hour for a stronger, spicier taste).

Add two more quarts apple cider, orange juice concentrate, and brown sugar.  

Cook another hour.

Enjoy and toast to next year's apple harvest!

For as long as I can remember my family has had Wassail (pronounced Wassle) during Thanksgiving celebrations.
