Holiday Wassail

 

Here is a little recipe straight from Susan Gerrity's kitchen to warm up your holiday times. This recipe was made for caroler during the holiday. They would go from house to house singer their Christmas songs. It was costumary  to invite them in to give them something warm to drink.

 

 
Ormiston Wassail Recipe 
Wassail for 12 people. 
1 cup sugar
 
3 cinnamon sticks
6 cloves
2 cups pineapple juice
2 cups orange juice
6 cups Claret or Burgundy – (I prefer the Burgundy because it has more body and is less sweet)
1 cup Dry Sherry              
    
 In large saucepan, combine sugar and fruit juices - stir until sugar has dissolved.
Slow boil for two minutes - add cinnamon sticks & cloves to taste.
Simmer for 10-15 minutes to combine tastes.
Remove cloves and cinnamon sticks.
 Add wine and sherry.
Re-heat to boil.
 
Simmer for 10 minutes to cool slightly.
Pour into punch bowl and garnish with orange slices and peeled cucumber slices, floating in bowl. Do not over garnish.
 Punch should be served very warm without any garnish.

Keep The Fireworks In The Sky With Grill Safety Tips Statistics show misuse of grills cause 8,000+ fires, 10 deaths per year As Independence Day approaches, barbecues all over the country are being prepared for use, but before you fire up the grill, taking the following precautions can help everyone enjoy barbecuing safely. The following safety tips promote safe outdoor cooking all summer long: -  Make sure your barbecue grill is on a level surface far enough away from homes, furniture, children and pets -  Check to see grill legs are sturdy and avoid grilling on a combustible surface such as a wooden deck. -  Position your grill so sparks and smoke won't fly towards people, furniture or buildings -  Avoid grilling in a confined space and if possible, don't grill on balconies and decks of apartments and condominiums -  Protect your hands and body by using long-handled grilling tools, potholder-type gloves and a heavy apron when over the grill -  Keep lighted cigarettes, matches and open flames away from your grill - Clean your grill after every use to avoid grease buildup at the bottom -  Never allow burned coals to smolder in any container on a wooden deck and make sure to douse coals with water before they're disposed -  Do not discard used briquettes in a cardboard carton or any other combustible container -  Avoid using gasoline, kerosene, alcohol or a cigarette lighter to ignite a fire -  Do not add more starter fluid to an existing fire -  Only use enough charcoal to last for the amount of time it's needed -  Make sure the ash catcher is properly attached when using a kettle grill -  In the event of bad weather while grilling, do not move a grill indoors; hot charcoal can build up lethal levels of carbon monoxide. -  Always store gas tanks in an upright position outside and away from your home or garage and out of the reach of children and pets -  Check to see tank valves are turned off when not in use -  To see if there may be a leak in a tube or connection, pour soapy water over it with the valve turned open – bubbles will appear if there is a leak. Should there be a leak, shut off the gas immediately and do not use the grill until it is repaired And for all types of grilling, never leave your grill unattended when in use. Taking time to check for safety will have everyone remembering your outdoor party for the right reasons.
