Wassel (Wassail) To Your Health

A wassail is wishing health to those around you and what better way to wish someone health than to give them something good to drink that is also good for them - like spiced apple cider. This is perfect for warming you up on cold mornings and in the evenings lends itself to a variety of adult beverage variations like adding a little brandy. Depending on your taste and choice of cider (some are more tart) this recipe can be adjusted to use less sugar or even substitute honey, Agave or your favorite sweetener.

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)


Combine everything in a pan over medium heat and cook (not boil) for 15 to 20 minutes to make sure all of the spices have a chance to mingle. The sugar is optional and to taste. Reduce the amount of sugar or omit it if you are watching your diet. Remove or strain out the spices and serve.

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.
