Apple Juice in Winter


Spicy hot apple juice for when there is snow on the ground. This is a super substitute for mulled wine if you are driving and cannot take alcohol.

This recipe was created and tested with sweet memories of the Kartoffel Kuche, Bad Homburg, near Frankfurt, Germany. Makes 4 drinks.


800 ml
FAIRTRADE apple juice
2.5 ml
FAIRTRADE ground cinnamon or
pieces of FAIRTRADE cinnamon stick
slices FAIRTRADE lemon
FAIRTRADE whole cloves
30 ml
organic FAIRTRADE runny honey


Gently heat the apple juice in a saucepan.

Add the honey as the juice warms through, and stir to dissolve.

Add the cinnamon powder as well if this method is used, stir well.

Once the mixture is hot (it should not be allowed to boil), pour the drinks into large wine glasses.

If you are using cinnamon stick put one piece in each of the glasses.

Take each slice of lemon and impale four cloves.

Add one cloven lemon slice to each drink.

To serve

Sip this beautiful aromatic drink, and enjoy curling your fingers around the hot glass.
