A few neighbors are stopping in. Some early, some late. That’s just right.
I’ll add a few more characters to the tree before our visitors get here. Gotta fill in those gaps. The Geezer has Christmas music on everywhere, and I am singing along.
Smells of simmering wassail fill the house as I wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
Grandma Maudie’s Wassail
1 Big bottle of Cider
3 sticks of Cinnamon
I good sized orange
Small jar of cloves
Before breakfast, pour the cider into a deep pan. Heat to just past simmer and turn down low. Add the cinnamon sticks, and slice the orange. Stick one clove in each orange segment. Simmer very slowly all day. Serves 6 to 10. Double cider and orange slices for up to 20 guests.
