    This drink is called Wassel.We usually fix it in the winter months and holidays.
    A member asked what a non-reactive pan was.This would be stainless steel,non-stick or enamel coated cookware.I prefere to fix mine in a crock pot.I usually fix a large batch,strain and store in fridge,micro as desired. - 3/28/09

    This is not apple cider, it's a very good recipe for wassail. You can add a little brandy to your mug when you're feeling under the weather. Would be interesting to see some member recipes for real mulled cider and hot toddies. Oh, and I make mine in a glass pot. - 12/16/10

    I thought it was great! But since I don't like cloves, I did'nt use any. Instead I used 1/2 of a fresly grated Nut meg.And I used golden raisins then finished by following the rest of the recipe. Do let it steep for at least 3 hours. I like it warm or hot mixed with herbal teas. - 4/30/09
