Christmas Punch – Navidenoeasy prep time 15 mins | cook time 1 hr 15 mins | SERVINGS 12
4 quarts of water 1 gallon
1 1/2 cup La Fe Brown Sugar
3 La Fe Cinnamon Sticks
1 lb Peaches
21 oz. La Fe Guava Pulp (1 ½ bags)
3/4 cup prunes chopped
11/2 cup apples chopped
1 cup pear chopped
1/2 cup raisins
3 sugar cane sticks, about 5-in. long cut into four pieces each
1 cup of La Fe Mango Pulp
Rum to taste
Place water in a large stockpot.
Add the La Fe brown sugar and La Fe cinnamon sticks to cook for about 15 minutes. If you are using fresh peaches, add them with the piloncillo and cinnamon, since they take longer to soften Ponche Navideno.
Add the chopped apples, and prunes along with the rest of the ingredients like the sugar cane sticks, La Fe mango pulp. If you are using the canned version of the tejocotes, then add them in this step as well as the La Fe guava pulp.
Simmer for about 1 hour. Serve hot in mugs, ladling in some of the fruit and adding rum to your liking.
