I know this isn't the normal picture for today, but I had to show you one of the gifts I recently received. My sisters and I exchange gifts at Christmas and this was one of the things Cheri gave me. It will give me lots of new ideas for Thursday's! Just so Terri doesn't think I like Cheri's gift better, I must tell you that she gave me a key chain that will display digital pictures. My sisters know me pretty well!
Now I'll get back to the business at hand. I have a recipe to share from my new cookbook. It sounds like something good for Christmas Eve or Christmas day!
6 inches of stick cinnamon, broken
12 whole cloves
7 cups water
1 12 ounce can frozen cranberry juice cocktail concentrate
1 12 ounce can frozen raspberry juice blend concentrate
1 12 ounce can frozen apple juice concentrate
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
For spice bag, cut a 6 inch square from a double thickness of cheesecloth or use a coffee filter. Place cinnamon and cloves in center and tie with clean kitchen string. In 4 to 6 quart slow cooker, combine water, juice concentrates, lemon juice and sugar. Add the spice bag to juice mix. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or on high for 2 to 3 hours. Remove the spice bag and discard. Ladle into glasses and enjoy.
