About this recipe: The old German classic Christmas and winter warmer. Boozy, spicy and indulgent. Similar to the British mulled wine. Great at a Christmas dinner party or for Bonfire Night as a winter warmer.
This also can be used as a cooking marinade for baked ham which is delicious served with roast winter veg! Just add the ham joint into a large oven suitable pan with the gluhwein mix (including the whole spices and fruit) and put in a preheated oven at gas mark 5 for 20-30 mins per lb. When ham is cooked take out of pan and leave to rest. Whilst ham is resting, reduce the gluhwein by adding a little more brown sugar and heating on high heat until you get a rich sauce. Spoon the sauce over the ham and serve with winter veg!!!
