  • Do you have time for a cup of Punch? This recipe is sooooo delicious!!! There is nothing in the teacup....yet..=)

    Hot Cranberry Punch

  • 2 quarts cranberry-raspberry (or cran-apple juice)
  • 2 quarts cranberry juice
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup lemonade
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 20 whole cloves
  • 30 red-hot candies

Combine juices, sugar; lemonade, spices and candies in a 5-quart stockpot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 1 hour. Remove spices. ( You have tied the spices in a piece of cheesecloth and tied with string). Cool and refrigerate untill serving time. Reheat in microwave. Oh my, I love this recipe.

"We blossom under praise like flowers in sun and dew; we open, we reach, we grow." Gerhard E. Frost

Psalms 71:23 " My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed."........how precious that we can blossom under God's love and direction, lifting our hearts and faces up to him as flowers do seeking the sunshine.
