4 cups apple juice

4 cups cranberry juice

4 cups orange juice

1/3 cup honey

2 teaspoons whole cloves

3 cinnamon sticks

One 2-inch knob ginger, peeled and sliced into coins 

1 lemon, sliced

1 orange, sliced

1 cup fresh cranberries, for garnish


  1. Combine the juices, honey, cloves, cinnamon sticks, ginger, lemons and oranges in the slow cooker. 
  2. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours. The longer it cooks, the more the flavor from the spices will permeate the wassail. 
  3. If desired, remove the cinnamon, citrus slices, cloves and ginger with a slotted spoon before serving. Float the cranberries in the tops of the glasses for garnish and serve warm.
