Gluhwein- not just for Christmas!

drinks, thermomix, Uncategorized, xmas

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.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
