4 Cloves of garlic
½ Bottle red wine
100ml Red wine vinegar
1 Cinnamon stick
2 Star Anise
450g Brown sugar
1 Vanilla pod
3 Bay leaves
Zest of 1 orange
1. Place the red wine, vinegar, sugar, honey, orange zest, brandy, cinnamon, vanilla, bayleaves, anise, and pepper in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
2. Dip in a very hot branding iron (stand back for this!)
3. Peel, core and dice all fruit and set aside. Reduce the mulled liquor by half.
4. Finely chop the onions and garlic, sweat with 25g of butter, add fruits and cover with mulled liquor, cook very gently, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour.
5. Set aside to cool, place in sterilized jars. A simple recipe to create, with many uses from serving with a simple pâté or dressing the turkey as an alternative to cranberry sauce.
