Wassail And Eggnog Recipes
6 bottles ale
12 small apples
3 whole cloves
3 whole allspice
3 broken cardamom seeds
1 broken 3" cinnamon stick
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground nutmeg
2 cups sugar
1 fifth dry sherry (1 750 ml bottle)
bake the apples at 350 for 20 minutes, or until tender. Tie the cloves,
allspice, cinnamon, and cardamom into a cheesecloth bag, place it with 1 bottle
of ale, the ginger and nutmeg, into a kettle and heat gently for 10 minutes.
Remove the bag, pour in the rest of the ale, the sugar, and the sherry. Heat for
20 minutes. Pour into a large bowl and float the apples on top. Serve hot.
Personally, I like to make holes in the apples. I would recommend a brown ale
for best results (newcastle, grant's, etc), but most good ales work fine.
12 eggs - separated
1 cup sugar
2 cups bourbon

1/2 tsp salt

the egg whites and cream. Chill. Serve cold, optionally top with nutmeg.
