I like to make it a few hours before we want it (if possible), that way it has longer to steep. It also makes the house smell really good while it is cooking! The recipe is as follows:
1/2 gallon cranberry juice
1 gallon apple juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
Mix all ingredients in crock pot. Cook on high for one hour, then turn down on low to keep it hot. If you have leftovers, you can refrigerate them. Make sure you take the cinnamon stick out of the leftovers before you store it! Otherwise, the cinnamon taste takes over. Enjoy!
