This delicious crockpot wassail recipe can be thrown together in five minutes then enjoyed warm for hours! Apple, orange, cinnamon, and other holiday spices give this a delicious aroma and flavor that will fill your entire house!
8 cups apple cider, 8 full cinnamon sticks, 2 tsp whole cloves, 2 star anise, 1/2 naval orange, 1 whole orange
Heat on high for two hours covered or four hours on low to warm up the mixture. If you’re going to have it on for a long period of time (more than two hours), make sure to move it down to low to just keep warm.
Double the recipe if you want to make a full gallon of cider (16 servings). This recipe is written for a small batch of only eight servings.Try making this once with anise before serving it to a crowd. If you like it with anise, leave it. If you prefer it without anise, you can omit and make the second time around. It’s a strong flavor (that I enjoy) that may not be best for kids.
