No.75 Mulled Apple

A good mulled apple juice starts with good apple juice. Try to get cloudy apple juice and stay away from the brown water that is sold as apple juice. Unlike the mulled wine recipe this only has the addition of one spice. Cinnamon and maple syrup will bring out the desired flavour.  The addition of vanilla well rounds this flavour and means you can use less sugary syrup. By adding green apples, e.g. brambley apples, you can increase the tannin acids in the juice, retaining a sharpness to the drink.

Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 3-4

1 Litre of good quality apple juice

1 large cooking apple

2 cinnamon sticks

5 tablespoons of maple syrup

  1. Core and slice the apple and add to a sauce pan

  3. Simmer for 30 minutes
  4. Strain the liquid
  5. Add more maple syrup to taste and serve
