Teetotallers Spiced Apple Cup

by MrHughesReviews

For those not able to imbibe on Christmas Eve I will also make a Spiced Apple Cup …. alcohol free but festive, delicious and warming


2 litres Good Quality Apple Juice

Orange studded with cloves

2 Cinnamon sticks

2 Star Anise

2 Cardamom pods

A chunk of ginger

Dark Brown Sugar to taste

Vanilla Pod

Place the apple juice and sugar in a large saucepan, heat to gentle simmer.  When the sugar has dissolved add the spices and leave to heat very gently.  Do not boil …. this time not to evaporate the alcohol just because it’s not necessary.  Serve in glasses with a thin slice of apple and a couple of cranberries
