Mulled wine

At this time of the year I adore the smell of Christmas.....the tree, scent of Christmas candles, freshly baked gingerbread biscuits and my favourite smell, mulled wine.

I thought that I would share our secret recipe with you.

1.1 litres/2 pints red wine
3 cinnamon sticks
6 star anise
6 cloves
3 oranges, sliced
3 lemons, sliced
150g/5oz brown sugar (you can use honey instead if you prefer)

1. Bring all of the ingredients to a simmer in a saucepan, then continue to simmer gently for 6-8 minutes, without boiling.
2. To serve, pour the mulled wine into six heatproof glasses.
