What is the suggested use for Gluhwein Spice Blend?

Just 1-2 tablespoons of our Gluhwein Spice Blend – depending how spiced you like the end result to be – will transform a bottle of red wine into a delicious warming drink; add a little demerara sugar to taste to the wine and spices and some fresh slices of orange and warm gently, do not boil, once warmed through, pour into mugs or heat proof glasses and enjoy! If you don’t drink use red grape juice or pomegranate juice. Alternatively add the spice blend to cider or apple juice to make mulled cider instead. You can add the spice blend wrapped in muslin to cordials, syrups, jams, jellies and marinades for pouring over gammon, chicken and pork. Add to cranberry sauce and chutney to add a little festive spice, whole pieces of cloves and cassia can be hard on the teeth so grind down the blend first and add to stuffing’s, cakes and to sugar to dust over mince pies.
