CHRISTMAS MULLED WINE RECIPE!

Posted by Jennifer | November 29, 2014

The nights are cold and what better treat to accompany you in front of the warm fire over the holiday season.
Ingredients:

2 – 3 750ml bottles of
pinot noir, merlot, or pinot or cab sav red wine
2 oranges (fresh)
350 ml boysenberries (canned in juice is good)
3 cinnamon sticks
2 whole star anise
236.59 ml brandy
236.59 ml dried sultana
118.29 ml water
4.92 ml ground ginger
29.58 ml dark brown sugar
ground nutmeg
Directions:
1
Night before: Place sultanas in a separate dish with good lid & cover with the brandy. Ensure there is room for the fruit to swell & expand. Cover and set aside in cool place.
2
2 to 3 hours before serving: Place the soaked sultanas & all remaining juice, the water, brown sugar, & boysenberries including juice into the slow cooker.
3
Switch on the slow cooker to its lowest heat setting.
4
Add 1 of the bottles of wine.
5
Add the zest finely chopped or shredded from one of the oranges. Peel or chop off the remaining pith from the orange, chop the fruit flesh into smaller pieces & add to the slow cooker.
6
With the second orange cut off & discard the top & tail of the pith (as this is hard) then slice into quarters length wise. Thinly slice these quarters and add to the slow cooker.
7
Add the remaining wine and spices.
8
Stir gently and place the the lid on the cooker.
9
Monitor the temperate up to serving time – if necessary switch the heating OFF for short periods of time to ensure the wine holds to a warm but never hot (to touch) temperature.
10
Serve each glass with fruit in the bottom of the glass & a teaspoon to enjoy the delicious fruity end of this Yule Tide drink.

Enjoy!
