Ginger apple wassail combines ginger beer and apple cider, an apple with sugar and cinnamon dunked in the mixture, ground nutmeg for garnish. I got my recipe from Zero-Proof Cocktails by Liz Scott. The process generates amazing kitchen aromas.
Overall, the project was a success in that the resulting drink was quite tasty. However, as may be apparent in the photo, the apples exploded in the oven. "You didn't core them?" said my wife. Well, no, the recipe didn't say I should. Oh well. Live and learn.
