Ohio Shaker's Spiced Grape Juice

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Beverages

 Ingredients List

  • 2 qt Grape juice (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 12 Whole cloves
  • 4 Sticks cinnamon
  • 2 tb Whole allspice


This recipe comes from a nearly defunct religious sect here in the United
States known as the Shakers. This celibate religious group ate communally,
but with men one side of the room and women on the other. Shakers are
famed for their quality furniture, their stewardship, and their excellent
cooking. This drink was common at their tables.

Combine all of the ingredients and heat over a very, very low flame. DO
NOT BOIL. Let the juice sit on the flame, stirring occassionally, until it
is hot. The longer the drink is on the flame the more the spices have a
chance to combine with the juice (I let mine sit for about 3 hours). Strain
the spices out of the juice. You may serve it hot, or serve it cold. A
slice of lemon goes great with it. Served cold it is a great summer drink!
