1/2 cup dried apples slices cut into small pieces
1/2 cup whole cranberries
4 cinnamon sticks
1 whole nutmeg broken into smaller pieces
2 Tablespoons whole cloves
2 Tablespoons whole allspice
Allow the apples and cranberries to air dry for several days.
Mix all ingredients together. Place 1/2 cup mixture and 2 cups water in a small sauce pans. Place over low heat and simmer for several hours. As more water as needed.
I allowed to simmer while Claire and I watched movies, sipped wine and knitted. Ahhh the magic of Christams.
