Raw Diet Recipe
Apricots lend golden color to this nicely spiced and fruity Holiday Wassail beverage with pineapple and orange.
1 16-oz. can apricot halves, undrained
4 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
2 cups apple cider
1 cup orange juice
18 organic cloves
6 organic cinnamon sticks, broken
Additional cinnamon sticks, optional
In a blender or food processor, blend apricots and liquid until smooth. Pour into a large saucepan. Add pineapple juice, cider and orange juice. Place the cloves and cinnamon sticks in a double thickness of cheesecloth; bring up corners of cloth and tie with a string to form a bag. Add to saucepan. (Or place loose spices in saucepan and strain before serving.) Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes. Serve hot in mugs. Garnish with cinnamon sticks if desired.
Recipe yields 2 quarts Holiday Wassail.
