Lindsay Lovin’ Sarah’s Cider!!!:)

………………………………………………………………………Here it is:)!!………………..

Lion House Wassail

2 1/4 cups of white sugar

4 cups of water

2 cinnamon sticks

1 slice of fresh ginger( A small dab of this will do, it’s very strong!  I use a piece about the size of a pea.  You can always add more!;)

4 cups of orange juice

2 cups of lemon juice

8 whole allspice berries( I use ground allspice.  The equivalent for ground is 1 1/2 tsp.)

1 tablespoon of whole cloves

Directions- 1.  In a large saucepan, combine sugar and water.  Boil for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat, and add cinnamon sticks, allspice berries, cloves and ginger.  Cover and let stand in a warm place for 1 hour.

2.  Strain liquid into a large pot.  Just before serving, add juices and cider and quickly bring to boil.  Remove from heat and serve.

Curl up on the couch with your favorite book by the fire and enjoy!
