Holiday Wassail (Non-Alcoholic)

Wassail is often made with ale or brandy, but this non-alcoholic version can be shared with the whole family!  Huzzah!

8 cups (64 oz.) apple cider
1/3 cup honey
1 cup cranberries
1 orange, sliced
4 cinnamon sticks
1 tablespoon whole cloves
2 teaspoons whole allspice

Place the apple cider into a large saucepan or stock pot.  Dissolve the honey in the apple cider over medium heat.  Reduce heat to low or transfer to a slow-cooker.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer over low heat for 1 to 4 hours.  Strain out cranberries, oranges, and spices.  Serve warm.
