Gluhwein- not just for Christmas!

Christmas markets, cold frosty nights, snoods, mittens and gluhwein to warm you inside- fab! Mine is made in the Thermomix but you can easily make in a traditional pan.

This is a recipe you can vary to your own taste, these are my base ingredients. I have adapted it from TM Fast and Easy Cooking.

  • 80g sugar ( you can certainly use less than this and it might be a good idea to start with less and increase it if you want it sweeter)
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 6 cloves
  • I whole nutmeg
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 star anise
  • 4 card omen pods, cracked
  • 6 whole allspice berries
  • 500ml apple juice
  • 500 ml water

750ml bottle red wine

50ml peach schnapps (if you want an alternative kick of brandy than feel free)

If heating in a pan brings to boil and simmer for 15 minutes before straining into glasses.

In TM bowl,

Grind sugar 5 seconds so 10

Weigh all the liquids into the TM bowl

Swedish tomtar knows a thing or two about cold nights and mulled wine...

Add all other ingredients to steamer basket and put into TM bowl.

Heat 90°, 15 minutes sp1.

Share and enjoy! Not just for Christmas.
