I have a confession to make, I am a bit of a ‘Grinch’ so you have fair warning that my Mulled Wine will probably be as ‘Christmassy’ as my little site gets over the coming weeks… It’s not that I don’t like Christmas, quite the opposite, I love it, I just dislike the fact that it seems to last 8 weeks! However I do maintain that, just like puppies, Mulled Wine is not JUST for Christmas. I can not wait for the cold weather to arrive so that I can fire up our log burner all day long and leave a huge pot of this seasonal classic simmering away for days on end. The smell in the house is divine, the arrival of the cold weather also sees us getting many more people popping by to say hello, I am sure it has something to do with the offer of a hot glass of mulled wine rather than my sparkling personality 😉
As you can probably tell, I love this recipe so was delighted to be invited to join in on a little project with a group of other foodies to create a mini Christmas recipe book in aid of a fantastic charity. We have all donated our time to get ‘Project Christmas’ to you in time for the yuletide season and each of us have both an existing recipe, in my case this Mulled Wine, as well as a brand new and exclusive recipe. Now I have seen all of these recipes, everything from Breakfasts through to desserts and even a Grinch like me is gonna be cooking more than a few of them before I grow weary of Christmas!
I’m certainly not one of those needy type of food bloggers, but in this particular instance I will shirk my typically understated approach and say. PLEASE SHARE THE SNOT OUTTA THIS! Every penny we make from the sales of the book will be donated to No Kid Hungry and we really want to ensure that we can make a healthy contribution and provide as many full bellies as we can over the Christmas period and the more people that see this and similar posts from my fellow contributors the more chance we have of making that happen, so even if mulled wine aint your thing, or even if Christmas aint your thing… NOTE the book is now no longer available however please feel free stop by and make a donation to No Kid Hungry.
