* We are guest posting over at High Heels and Grills today - Go check out our mouthwatering pumpkin recipe! *
My list of comfort foods is pretty long. Consisting of pasta, baked potatoes, ice cream, Twizzlers... and loads of others guilty pleasures. But I have to say - wassail has to be one in my top five. Not only does the taste remind me of loads of Christmas memories, but the smell consumes our house - bringing everyone to the kitchen. This recipe in particular is simple, healthy, and yummy (incorporating all of the Pass the Fresh goals!). Most wassail recipes call for cinnamon sticks, but upon going to the store and finding them in the spice aisle - I realized how expensive they can be. So if you have them - great! If not, I think ground cinnamon does the trick just fine. Also, I'm sure you know from recipes past that "sweet tooth" is my middle name. I like to sprinkle a little white or brown sugar in the pot - but this recipe is very forgiving. Add anything your taste buds desire! Hope you and your family enjoy this holiday treat as much as we did.
