This is a recipe my mother made and passed down to me. I have passed it down to my daughters. It is a traditional holiday punch for Christmas parties. Enjoy! You stud the oranges with the whole cloves -- you can make decorative designs, if you want.
- Stud the oranges with the whole cloves and bake in a 300 degree oven for 30 minutes.
- On top of the stove, heat the cider and cinnamon sticks until almost boiling.
- Pour the hot cider into a large punch bowl. Add the studded oranges. Add the brandy to taste -- the more the merrier!
- To replenish wassail, just add more heated cider and more brandy. The longer the oranges sit in the punch, the more orange flavor there is to it.
