Ingredients

  • 4 cups apple juice
  • 4 cups cranberry juice
  • 4 cups orange juice
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons whole cloves
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • One 2-inch knob ginger, peeled and sliced into coins 
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries, for garnish

Directions

Combine the juices, honey, cloves, cinnamon sticks, ginger, lemons and oranges in the slow cooker. 

Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours. The longer it cooks, the more the flavor from the spices will permeate the wassail. 

If desired, remove the cinnamon, citrus slices, cloves and ginger with a slotted spoon before serving. Float the cranberries in the tops of the glasses for garnish and serve warm.
