Ricky's Wassail Recipe

My nephew recently did a presentation on Christmas in Great Britain for his 3rd grade class.  As part of the presentation, he made wassail for his classmates.  Since he now is hooked on the beverage, I had him bring it for Christmas dinner.  :)  It is good!

Here's the recipe (adapted for a classroom):

1 gallon apple cider
1 whole clove per child (20-35)
1 whole allspice per child (20-35)
2-3 cinnamon sticks
2/3 c. sugar
1-2 slice oranges or apples (optional)

Put cider in a large pot; add spices and sugar.  Simmer for about 30 minutes.  Strain out spices and pour into a punch bowl.  Float orange or apple slices on top.  Serve.
