"...and we will discuss your affairs this very afternoon,
over a Christmas bowl of smoking bishop, Bob!"

A Christmas Carol

Smoking bishop

5 unpeeled, sweet oranges
1 unpeeled grapefruit
36 cloves
1/4 pound of sugar
2 bottles of red wine (strong)
1 bottle of port

Wash the fruit and bake them in the oven until
they are brownish. Turn once.
Put them into a warmed earthenware bowl with
six cloves pricked into each.
Add the sugar and pour in the wine - not the port.
Cover and leave in a warm place for a day.
Squeeze the fruit into the wine and strain.
Add the port and heat. DO NOT BOIL!

Serve "smoking hot" in small wine glasses.
Yield: 15 to 20 servings
