  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 quarts apple cider
  • 2 cups Orange Juice
  • 12 whole cloves
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground ginger


  • Put everything in a slow cooker, and slow cook all day.
  • My favorite slow cooker is this Hamilton Beach brand. It's big enough for all of my recipes and will automatically switch to warm when my recipe is done cooking.
  • But for Wassaill just let it do it's thing and enjoy the scent of the Christmas season.
  • Enjoy.
