  2. Title: Mulled Apple Juice

  3. Categories: Polkadot, Lisa, Beverages, Spicy

  4. Yield: 1 Servings

  5. 25 Cinnamon sticks,

  6. 2 inches long

  7. -ounces)

  8. 6 Whole nutmegs (1 ounce)

  9. 1/3 c Each: chopped dried orange

  10. -AND -lemon peel

  11. -(drying instructions

  12. -follow)

  13. 1/4 c Each: whole allspice AND -whole cloves

  14. 2 tb Finely chopped,

  15. -crystalized ginger

  16. - Put cinnamon sticks and nutmeg in a plastic bag and crush with a

  17. rolling pin or bottom of a small heavy skillet until broken in small

  18. pieces. (The nutmeg will be quite stubborn.) Mix with remaining

  19. ingredients. Keep the mix in a glass jar until ready to use.

  20. Alternatively, you could place 3 generous tablespoons of the mix in a

  21. 5-inch square of cheescloth and tie the bundle with string. I don't

  22. care for this method as I've found you end up with little floaters of

  23. the cheesecloth "string" in the final mulled concoction. I prefer to

  24. put some of the mix in a silver tea ball instead.

  25. 1/2 cup water and 1/3 cup

  26. granulated sugar in a large saucepan. Heat over medium heat until

  27. sugar is dissolved. Add 3 1/4 cups of wine (red or white) and the

  28. spice bag or teaball filled with spice mix. Reduce heat to low, cover

  29. and heat very gently until mixture is very hot but not boiling (about 20 minutes

  30. 8 cups of apple

  31. juice. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 30

  32. to 35 minutes.

  33. I've also been told that mulled cranberry juice is quite good, but I

  34. haven't tried it yet.

  35. To dry citrus peel: With a vegetable peeler, remove the colored part

  36. 2 large oranges and 4 lemons. Place in single layer on

  37. plate; cover with a paper towel and let stand at room temperature 1

  38. day or until dried. Snip in small pieces with kitchen shears or chop

  39. course.

  40. Enjoy!! -- Earl Locken lockene
