Day on the Farm 19th December with mulled wine

We had a good day at Winfarthing and came home with sprouts, parsnips, celeariac, leeks, leaves, and probably slugs! There are still some potatoes in the shed that haven’t been taken.

We also celebrated Christmas with some mulled wine and for those who wanted the recipe, it’s below.

1/2 (as in half) pint water 4 oz sugar 4 cloves 2 in stick cinnamon

1 or 2 lemons, thinly sliced 1 bottle of red wine.

Boil water, sugar and spices together. Add the lemons, stir and leave to stand for 10 minutes. Pour back into the saucepan and add the red wine. Heat, but do not boil. Strain the wine into a bowl and serve hot. Makes about 1 1/2 pts.
