WASSAIL



Wassail image

Wassail is a hot mulled cider, traditionally enjoyed during wassailing, an English Christmas drinking ritual intended to ensure a good apple harvest the following year. The whole baked apples floating on top lend a homey feel to the warming festive drink. Serve as is -- or top with a splash of brandy if you like. It's perfect for a big family gathering or holiday party.

Time 1h45m

Yield 10 to 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 13

1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
6 Fuji apples, cored
Four 11.2-ounce bottles English hard cider, such as Strongbow
Two 12-ounce bottles English pale ale, such as Bass
2 cups apple cider
1 cup Madeira
10 whole cloves
10 whole allspice berries
4 cinnamon sticks, plus more for serving
2 wide strips orange zest, plus orange wedges, for serving
2 wide strips lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spoon the sugar into the center of each apple, then place in a 9-inch square baking dish with 1 cup water. Bake until the apples are very tender, 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add the hard cider, pale ale, apple cider and Madeira to a large pot and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Put the cloves, allspice, cinnamon sticks, orange zest and lemon zest in a piece of cheesecloth and tie it closed. Add to the pot along with the ginger and nutmeg. Reduce the heat to low and steep the mixture until the liquid is well spiced and fragrant, about 1 hour.
  • Add the cooked apples and any of their juices to the pot and stir to combine. Remove the cheesecloth. Serve warm in individual mugs with an orange wedge and cinnamon stick.

WASSAIL



Wassail image

Here is the the beauty of wassail: more than just another nice-tasting drink, it's part of a long (if largely forgotten) tradition of celebrating the life that winter can seem determined to snuff out. It's a fragrant, warming concoction mixed in bulk (this recipe makes 12 servings) and set out for sharing, all but demanding that you call in a crowd. There's really no such thing as wassail for one. A punch bowl is good for this, although you can also ladle it into individual cups. (The New York Times)
