It’s not quite the season for wassail yet here in central New York, but it’s getting close. I like making up a bunch of this and curling up with a mug of it and a good book.

1 gallon apple cider
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons whole cloves
2 teaspoons whole allspice
2 three-inch sticks of cinnamon
2 oranges

Heat all ingrediants except oranges. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. After 10 minutes, quarter the oranges and add them. Strain the spices out (or work around them) and serve.
