It’s hotter than heck here in Texas, and when it gets this hot I find myself dreaming of those crisp October nights where you just want to curl up with a blanket and sip on something warm!

In fact, I got to do just that last week when we escaped to the cooler temperatures in Colorado where Colby was playing in his baseball series world series.

While there, I was experimenting in the kitchen and created the most perfect Wassail recipe!

When I got home I recreated it to make sure it wasn’t a fluke and boy it was delicious!

Before you start cooking your traditional Wassail it will be helpful to go ahead and wash and slice up one apple as well as clean and slice one whole orange.

After your apple and orange are washed, grab a large saucepan and you are ready to start cooking your Wassail or mulled cider.

The first step in making your traditional wassail is to mix the apple cider with 4 Tablespoons of brown sugar.

Stir until it is completely dissolved.

Did you know brown sugar actually helps with the acidity and spice from the added fruit?

This way your wassail is the perfect balance of flavors.

Next, add your sliced apples and oranges along with the cinnamon sticks, cloves, and star of anise.

Star of anise isn’t cheap and you can make it without this ingredient. It will still taste just fine without. However, it does make a beautiful presentation when used. So maybe when making traditional cider for the kids do without it, but for a gathering with friends or on holidays splurge to add it!

It is really up to you!

Lastly, you will want to bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.

Once you bring your traditional wassail to boil reduce your heat to a slow simmer and allow it to simmer for 25 minutes covered.

Now that your mulled cider has simmered for 25 minutes it is ready to serve.
