Immunity boosting, heart-warming mulled apple cider.


  • 4 apples, (or skip this stage and buy 1 litre of apple cider)
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • 3 cloves
  • 1/4 nutmeg ground.
  • 2 star of anise
  • 1/2 vanilla pod.
  • pinch black pepper


  • Peel and chop the apples. Add to a pan with water to cover and another two inches. Boil for one hour then strain. (Or, add 1 litre apple cider to your pan).
  • Bring newly made apple cider base to a pan and bring to the boil. Then add all the spices to the pan, and leave to simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes before ladling out!
