This kit is great for making your own apple cider or for spiced mead. Contains enough for three gallons of this beloved holiday treat. 

Includes cinnamon sticks, cut ginger, ground nutmeg and three muslin brew bags. 

Brewing Instructions: Fill a pot with 1 gallon of fresh apple cider, or ale, or mead.  Fill spice bag with ⅓ cup of wassail spices.  Add spices and ½ cup sugar (if desired), and simmer at low heat for 1-2 hours.  Serve hot or chilled. 

Wassail (Middle English 'wæs hæl' - ‘be you healthy’) refers both to the salute 'Waes Hail' and to the drink of wassail, a hot mulled cider drunk as part of wassailing, an English ritual intended to ensure a good apple harvest the following year.  Historically, the drink is a mulled cider, mulled beer, or mead, made with sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg and topped with toast.  A group then sings: “Old Apple tree, old apple tree, we've come to wassail thee, To bear and to bow apples enow, Hats full, caps full, three bushel bags full, Barn floors full and a little heap under the stairs.”
