Thanks for all your lovely comments about my craft fair 'experience' at the weekend, really appreciate everyone's encouragement and its really helpful to hear other experiences.
Another success story from the weekend, was Hot Spicy Apple Juice. I spend Saturday looking rather longingly at people drinking mulled wine. And thought it would be great to have a non alcoholic version. So on Saturday night I went home and made some Hot Spicy Apple Juice, it was loosely based on a recipe for mulled cider by Sarah Raven, which is also very yummy.
The recipe is roughly as follows:
Hot Spicy Apple Juice
2 litres of apple juice.
2 apples, sliced
2 oranges sliced
Lemon zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 cinnamon sticks
About 2 tables spoons of brown sugar, you may want to do this taste.
1 tsp of mixed spice.
Bung everything in a large pan and gently simmer for an hour, then drain and drink. I re-heated the next morning and put in a flask and it was great.
I think this may become my tipple this Christmas.
