Simmer down with a warm pineapple punch made in the slow cooker. We use cinnamon and Red Hots to give it that cozy spiced flavor and welcome-home aroma. —Angie Goins, Tazewell, TN

"I make wassail a lot during Christmas, but I thought I would give this punch a try. Instead of the crock pot, I used my percolator and put the cinnamon stick in the basket along with a sliced orange. I served this punch in clear cups and it was a pretty red hot punch. While good, my husband told me to go back to my traditional wassail recipe. I told him that this was NOT a wassail , just a hot punch."

"This punch was good but mine turned out to have a little more spice in it. I used the same amount of cinnamon sticks it said to but mine had way too much cinnamon flavor and instead of it being a red color the drink ended up being brown. It still tasted good but next time I'm only going to use one cinnamon stick and more cranberry Juice."
