Recipe from my pretty little Mother
4 C orange juice
8 C (64 ounce bottle) apple juice
1/4 C lemon juice
3/4 C brown sugar
4 cinnamon sticks
1/8 t cloves
1. Into a large pot pour 4 cups orange juice, 8 cups of apple juice (a whole 64 ounce bottle) and 1/4 cup lemon juice. You don't need to use fresh lemon juice, bottle works just fine.
2. Add 3/4 cup brown sugar and 6 lovely cinnamon sticks. Toss about 1/8 teaspoon of cloves into the pot.
3. Stir all the ingredients together with a whisk. Put the pot on the stove and bring it to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.
4. Remove the cinnamon sticks and serve. Be sure not to forget...cinnamon sticks left in the pot for an extended time make the wassail bitter. If you are serving this for a party or get together, transfer the wassail to a crock pot and turn it to warm. Store leftovers in the fridge.
