French Food Friday....Mulled Wine/Vin Chaud




We have had the warmest two weeks on record in France, hence waking up to 0 degrees this morning has come as quite a shock. As a result, I am thinking cosy which includes feather duvet on bed in place of French summer quilt, baking which warms the kitchen at the same time and warm spicy drinks.


One of my favourites is mulled wine, hope you enjoy it as much as we do.....


Vin Chaud

Preparation:

Heat gently 75 cl of wine + a glass of water add 20 g of spices for mulled wine (1 / 2 box) and 60 g sugar complete the mixture with a few slices of oranges.
Note: Infuse spices at least 10 minutes (the mixture should not boil)
Préparation :
Chauffer doucement 75 cl de vin + un verre d’eau
ajouter 20 g d’épices pour vin chaud (1/2 boîte) ainsi que 60 g de sucre
compléter le mélange par quelques rondelles d’oranges.

Remarque :
Laisser infuser les épices au minimum 10 minutes (Le mélange ne doit pas bouillir)


You can replace the bottle of wine with a good bottle of apple juice, we tasted this recently at a marche de noel and it really is delicious.

Note for those of you that live locally, we have the mulled wine spices available in the shop, which are sourced from a reputable company in Belgium, reknown for their fine foods and spices.


Santé,a tous, Leeann x
