Kid-Friendly Crock-pot Wassail
Are any of you Christmas Caroling this year? Wassail can help to set the mood of singing, feasting, and celebration at Christmas time. In fact, “Here We Come A Wassailing/Caroling” is one of my favorite choral Christmas songs.
As an aside, the song reminds me of the A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Every year my husband and I read it to our family (mostly my husband, though:). This year we have already watched 4 different versions of A Christmas Carol, the ones starring George C. Scott, The Muppets, Mickey, and Jim Carrey. The story is a classic, and I believe it is an amazing tale of God’s mercy on man. We can change, even late in life, and prioritize. People and relationship are more important than money. Here is our kid friendly version of Wassail. It is low in sugar than other versions you may find. Feel free to add more sugar to taste, as the sweetness cooks away some.
The Verdict: Activate your senses. The aroma of the crock-pot wassail fills a room with Christmas cheer. This is such an easy drink to make, tastes amazing and it’s a hit with the kids, too!
This recipe is easily halved if it seems to much for you. **Updated 12/14.
