Traditional Boilo:

This is my grandfathers traditional recipe.

4 oranges
4 lemons
1 cup raisins
8 oz. honey
1/2 to 1 tsp nutmeg, cloves, caraway seed, anise (to taste)
2 cinnamon sticks
2 tbsp. sugar

Peel oranges and lemons, and squeeze them into a pot. Also throw in peels and all other parts of them. Add all other ingredients and simmer on stove stirring often (you may also put all of this in a crock-pot for 2 to 4 hours for better flavor).

Add in some ginger ale (to taste), I usually use anywhere from 1/4 to 1/2 a bottle. Let cook a few more minutes.


Remove from heat and add 1 bottle of whisky (use 4 queens if available).

Serve warm. It is supposed to be strong and sipped, if it is to strong, add more ginger ale.


Apple Pie Boilo:

1 gallon apple cider
1/2 gallon apple juice
1/2 cup sugar
4 cinnamon sticks
2 red delicious apples, cut (take out core)

Combine in pot and simmer for 2 hours on stove. Remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes. Strain. Let sit 15 minutes.

Add 1 bottle of whisky (4 queens), and 1/2 bottle of Rocken Rye.

Let cool. Refrigerate.

Serve warm.
