Lemon-Orange wassail.

Lemon-Orange Wassail

Toast health and fortune with this light wassail based on apple cider instead of ale and wine.

3 small oranges

1 tablespoon whole cloves

3 quarts apple cider

1 quart orange juice

1/3 cup lemon juice

4 sticks cinnamon, each 3 to 4 inches long

1 teaspoon whole allspice

Stud each orange with 1 teaspoon cloves, spacing the cloves evenly over the surface of the fruit.

In a 6- to 8-quart pan, combine cider, orange and lemon juice, cinnamon, and allspice (if desired, tie spices loosely in a square of cheesecloth so they will be easy to remove).

Cover and bring to boiling; reduce heat to low and simmer about 1 hour for flavors to develop. Serve hot. If made ahead, let wassail cool and lift out spices and oranges. Discard spices. Chill liquid (in covered noncorrodible container) and oranges up to 3 days. To reheat, return liquid and oranges to original pan and bring to a boil, covered, on high heat; serve at once. Ladle wassail into mugs. Makes about 4 quarts or 16 servings, 1 cup each.
