Yum....wassail to humidifier

Have you ever walked into someone's house and a wonderful smell whiffs past your nose and you immediately feel at home?  That's how I feel about the smell of this mixture.
Here's what you'll need:
20 Allspice Berries
25 Whole Cloves
10 Cinnamon Sticks (about 3 inches long)
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Gallon Apple Juice

Pour the apple juice in a big pot, add the brown sugar-stir.  Wrap all the spices in the cheese cloth and tie closed.  Place the cheesecloth-ed spices in the apple juice and boil for 25-30 minutes.  If you like really strong flavored cider keep the spices in for longer.  After the 30 minutes remove the spices and turn off the stove.  Serve the drink in mugs or insulated cups.
We made wassail/apple cider last night and I had the cheesecloth wrapped spices still in the pan this morning.  I added water and turned the stove on.  Not only do the spices fill the air with a Christmas-y aroma it adds humidity to the air-something we desperately need this time of year.
So have yourself a cup and warm right up tonight.
