Ohio Shaker’s Spiced Grape Juice


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 2 quarts grape juice (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cup vegan sugar
  • 12 whole cloves
  • 4 sticks cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons whole allspice


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!

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.
