Mulled beverages are a welcome addition to any crisp cold day and are an especially lovely offering for a festive holiday celebration. This premium blend is a wonderful recipe of delectable spices usually not seen anymore in traditional mulling spices which have unfortunately been diminished to 3 to 5 of the more common spice varieties which are more readily available.Our mulling spices may be used with almost any tea for a guilt-free low calorie beverage or you may wish to try mulled wine, fruit juice or cider for a warming and delicious hot drink. A simmering pot of apple cider or cran-apple blend with organic mulling spices makes the best potpourri EVER to fill your home with a warm, spicy and enticing natural aroma.Mulling spices are truly beautiful and you can purchase loose to simmer in the pot and strain upon serving or may prefer delivered ready to go in an organic muslin bag with food grade cotton ties. Especially lovely gift items as well.
Pick a beverage to mull:Red wine (1/2 c of orange or pineapple juice added to a bottle of wine is a lovely flavour compliment)Brewed tea of choice (a bold black makes the best mulled tea)Apple or Cherry Cider (doesn't get much better than that!)Fruit juices: pear, cranberry, orange, pineapple, mixtures are nice as well like apple-cranberry or cranberry-raspberry.
Put beverage choice in desired amount to mull in saucepan (a crock pot works well for this purpose too). Measure mulling spices and throw in an extra cinnamon stick or two if you are a cinnamon fan. Most mulling spices recommend 1 Tbsp. minimum per cup. We don't know if it is the quality of the spices making the difference but we do find this to be a bit too strong of a presence and recommend 1/2 Tbsp. (about 4g) per cup of beverage to be mulled. Heat slowly over medium heat until steaming and little bubbles form around the edges of the pot. This is known as the pre-boil, you do not want to reach a boil. Turn down heat to low, cover and let simmer happily and fragrantly for 20 minutes or so. After the simmering time, if you are using a muslin spice bag remove the spice bag. If utilizing loose spices strain the spices and enjoy. A touch of organic vanilla extract is a nice addition to this lovely blend and a cinnamon stick and cut orange slice adds to the presentation.
Lovely to time this about 15 minutes prior to arrival of your guests to fill your home with an inviting aroma simmering on the stove or in a crock pot and ready to serve upon arrival.
