Mom's Wassail

1 gallon apple cider
2 cups cranberry juice
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup sugar
2 oranges
Whole cloves
1 apple peeled and diced
3 cinnamon sticks

Set your stove or crockpot on low. Pour apple cider, cranberry juice, honey, sugar and mix carefully. As it heats up stir so that honey and sugar dissolve. Stud the oranges with the cloves and place in pot. Add the diced apple. Add allspice, ginger and nutmeg to taste, usually a couple of tablespoons is plenty. Snap the cinnamon sticks in half and add. Cover pot and allow to simmer 2 to 4 hours on low.
