Wassail. A perfect treat on a cold day.

I'm a little late with this post....I said it would be Tuesday, oh well. Last week, I had a rough bout with sinuses and coughing, and I wanted something hot to drink. Well, this time of year is perfect for wassail. My husband bought some cran-pomegranate juice to mask the nasty propolis I took to get rid of my cough.(Propolis requires a separate post.)

Anyway, this is a super easy crockpot recipe,'s amazing! I actually can't believe I came up with this! Do be aware that even though there is no sugar added, the ingredients naturally contain sugar, so there is, well, sugar in this recipe. But it's ok to have as a treat and is definitely not as high-calorie as many of the wassail recipes out there!

Whistlin' Wassail
4 c. no sugar added apple juice
4 c. no sugar added cran-pom juice
1 can mandarin oranges with no syrup.
6 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp. ground cloves

Place all ingredients together in a crockpot on high for 2 hours. Enjoy! Oh, and by the way this made my house smell wonderful!!! :-)

Let me know what you think!
