The boys helped me decorate the house this weekend, and I think we’re all ready for fall.

This wassail recipe gets me in the mood and is the easiest I’ve ever found.  It’s a go-to recipe when we have company, and it makes the kitchen smell wonderful like spiced cider.

Leftover wassail can be stored in the refrigerator and makes a great decaf alternative to coffee.

Quick and Easy Wassail

1 (64 oz) bottle of apple juice or cider

1 (32 oz) bottle of cranberry juice cocktail

2 c. orange juice

½ c. lemon juice

1 c. sugar

2 t. ground cinnamon

1 t. allspice

1 t. ground cloves

1 orange, thinly sliced (optional)

Bring all ingredients except the orange to a boil. Reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes. Add orange slices and serve immediately.
