Wassel (Wassail) To Your Health
On special occasions I like to drop a thin slice of dehydrated apple into the mug before serving. The spiced cider rehydrates the apple making for an extra apple punch at the bottom of the cup. Most health food stores and big city grocery stores sell dehydrated sliced apples, they weigh almost nothing and keep in the pantry for years.
2 quarts apple cider 1 stick cinnamon 1 teaspoon whole allspice 1 teaspoon whole cloves 1/4 cups sugar or other sweetener to taste (optional)
You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.
We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
