WASSAIL PUNCH

4 red eating apples
2 pints brown ale
1/2 pint dry sherry
2 oz soft brown sugar
2 or 3 strips of lemon peel
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground mixed spices

Set oven to 350. Wash the apples and score a line through the skin
around the centre of each one. Place in a casserole dish which
can also be used on the cooker hob and add the sugar and 1/4 pint
of the brown ale. Cover and cook in the oven for 30 minutes until
the apples are tender. Remove the apples and keep to one side.
Add the remaining brown ale, sherry, lemon peel and spices to the
casserole dish and simmer for 6 minutes on the hob to allow the
flavours to mingle; add the apples and serve hot.

Wassailing is an ancient custom carried out on the Twelfth Night
to encourage a better harvest from the fruit (particularly apple)
tree at which a punch, such as this, may be drunk.
