1 gallon unfiltered apple juice
1 can frozen cranberry juice
1 bottle red wine (optional)
6 oz orange slices
1tsp grated nutmeg
5 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp allspice seeds
8-10 whole cloves
1 tsp cardamom seeds

In a large stock pot or crock pot, pour apple juice. Add frozen cranberry juice right from can *DO NOT ADD WATER* Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer low until well blended and ready to serve.

**This makes a great juice for kids (omitting the wine). Just pour left over juice back into apple juice container and keep in the refrigerator. Can be re-heated cup by cup for those cold winter mornings.**
