Lion House Wassail

This is the recipe dad would make and serve to the ward members who came in for tithing settlement when he was the bishop in Florida.

  • 2 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 slice fresh ginger root
  • 4 cups orange juice
  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • 8 cups apple juice
  • 8 whole allspice berries
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves

In a large saucepan, combine sugar and water. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and add cinnamon sticks, allspice berries, cloves, and ginger. Cover and let stand in warm place for 1 hour.

Strain liquid into a large pot. Just before serving, add juices and cider and quickly bring to boil. Remove from heat and serve.  Dad made this and served it to ward members coming in to tithing settlement when he was the bishop of the Riverview Ward.
